5.04.14 Crabbie's Grand National Chase (Grade 3 Handicap) in Aintree

Some call this race " Bingo on legs " and they have a point with 40 runners going to post. As usual i reached for David Duncan 's book " Winning Horse Race Formulae " out of my library. This book contains excellent selection criteria, how to find the winner and after i have put all horses through the filters i backed the following three contenders against the field - Big Shu @ 25/1( IRE, pictured )*** F, Monbeg Dude @ 14/1 ( IRE )***7th and Chance de Roy @ 33/1 ( FR )*** 6th. The race is not was it used to be after the obstacles have been modified, but still grueling enough. Let's hope all jockeys and horses make it home safe and sound.
