    Mate do not bet on Knowhere, I have seen him twice at cheltenham when I have been and hasnt finished either and been way at the back. Will struggle big time with National fences.

    I havent even looked at who in the national this year, in bout 4 years I had one second place and thats all

    Thats the thing, he's quick but not the best jumper, watch the replay of last years race you'll see he would have won at a canter if he didn't fall.

    Lol sam my bet is no horsea to fall at the first fence...what did you get for any horse to fall?

    yeah im having big fella thanks...

    also my will, i know its favourite at 7-1 but ruby walsh is riding...big at cheltenham worth a score to win

    look at the random bets like the winner to win by more than 10 lengths shit like that, they're the best bets...

    its showing as 4-1...putting bets on saturday though...its surprising how much shit changes without knowing the conditions e.t.c

    the fences are a lot weaker than they used to be....before you had horses being put down left right and centre cos they were hitting the big fences at such pace and they were so hard they were just breaking their legs...now the horses are nearly walking through the fences...i hope the fences are a bit stronger this year but they should all get through the first fence...fingers crossed...

    last year i had a score on 4-1

    Just had a quick look and no horse really stands out for me. Wouldnt be surprised if outsider wins this year.

    Favourite hardly ever wins the nationally, odds are still against it

    Agree, the specials seem the best way if wanna make some nuggets, but will put couple of quid on a couple horses to keep me more intersested when Im watching it.

    Not sure what yet will probably just go in bookies saturday morning and just see what I fancy, form dont count for anything

    Cornish Sett - I used to compete up against nick (the jockey) a few years ago, he's got every chance.

    Southern Vic - Like the sire... very nice horse, that jumps.

    Niche Market - again, nice horse that jumps.

    These horses have got funny names.

    I liked the one last year called Simon. That's a good name for a horse

    It's a horse race, and loads of people get very excited about it.

    Lots of horses get hurt though.

    There's also one called battlecry which is pretty good...
    Offshore Account is another good one :)

    I think Stan wins it for me though.

    Most probably, Stan does sound like a proper old name.
    Bet it has a massive grey beard and is proper wrinkly.

    Still Iv got faith in old Stanley. :)
