Hey,

 

The Big Race is nearly upon us!

 

I went to Aintree today and what a day it was. :D I came out with a nice profit at the end the day. We were all mainly based in a HUGE marquee all day, and you just couldn't move. Plenty of beverages were consumed, trips over to the Tote stand were frequent. Live music all day and it was Ladies Day meaning the ladies scrubbed up well. :)

 

It was sunny and a good day was had by all. The fifth time i'd been to Aintree and it was the best yet. Gotta love the races.

 

I was walking in and Duncan Ferguson and Alan Stubbs were waiting in the queue just to the left of me. Bizarre. Tried to get on telly behind Clare Balding etc.

 

Top, top day!

 

Anyway, who are you backing for the big race tomorrow?

 

Cheers.

Well i have got a horse chosen at work, we have a sweepstake every year £1 a pop. I never seem to get anything, and this year seems no different as i have a horse called "Spot The Difference". It doesnt sound like a winner.

im in with some people from work (only a pound)

 

weve gone for...

 

a pound each way on Davids Lad - pundits are talking him up

pound on Montys Pss - not a good bet according to the pundits

and finally a pound on Hermes III which has not been listed anywhere today and i think must have been withdrawn :( oops!

 

anyone know what happens to the bet if the horse is withdrawn before the race? do we jsut lose the money?

Gutted after that. Had my dad put £2 on HedgeHunter winning, and it leads most the way, goes down to 2nd/3rd up to the last fence but still in with a chance, then it falls :( Ah well, thats why gambling is wrong people :P

Had Amberliegh house each way.....backed Clan Royal to win.....BUGGER!!!!

 

Still, I also backed Lord Atterbury each way as well.

 

Spot Thedifference came fifth Alan, I backed it each way as well on a site that paid out on the first five so you may have won something or you may not depending on how many places your sweepstake pays on.

 

So I had three of the first five each way and almost made a mint on Clan Royal if it had won but I'll take what i won anyway :)

Got £30+ back from Amberleigh House!! :D W00T!! I didn't watch the race because I was working but someone passed the good news onto me.

 

I got a tip on Tyneandthyneagain and stuck £2 e/w on it but it didn't end up running so I get a few quid back on that too.

 

Awesome few days. :)
