Silver By Nature, was at 40s at the start of the year, is in now to 14s.  Not my tip I'd like to add, but a friend of a friend sort of thing. He told me about it in January and is supposedly having a very good year.
It's not about escaping. It's about getting out with a bit of dignity.
If you're in it, don't fucking moan about it, make it yours and leave a mark

Was told the same. I think that came from the Herald.

good shout from daytripping there, sure BFT is in around the favourites this year.

Not had a look at the race at all yet, as if that makes any difference for a mug like me!

May have a small bet this year. Usually put on a few quid, never to see it again. I  know absolutely nothing about horses and usually just go for the bizarre names.

Silver By Nature is owned by St Johnstone chairman Geoff Brown. And there endeth my knowledge of this year's Grand National.

Just got Vic Venturi in the works sweep so will be punting a couple of quid on. Guaranteed to be on its way to the glue factory by 5 on Saturday.

I'm on Don't Push It (again) and Silver by Nature, both e/w.

Bit concerned that too many seem to be tipping Silver by Nature.

I'm fancying Ballabriggs, Character Building (e/w) and Midnight Club. Big Fella Thanks might also be worth a good e/w bet. No decided yet what bet to stick on Ballabriggs or Midnight Club.
