    The Grand National

    So next weekend see's the 2011 Grand National get underway at Aintree.

    It's called the most famous steeplechase in the world, so to do the test, do any non-British members know what it is?!

    Re: The Grand National

    Well, my system is floored so maybe i should take a leaf out of mum's book and just go for the one with the nicest name?!.. lol

    It's a tough, long race so you need an element of luck as you know Anglo but i think Niche Market COULD go well, think best price i've seen that is 33/1 so will have a couple quid on that i think.

    Without looking it up, and coming from a track and field background, I know the steeplechase is an event that involves long distance running, jumping over big hurdles, and running through water.

    But judging by the name posted above and the betting odds, I'd say it's a horse race.

    Not long to go now.

    I've picked Big Fella Thanks, the wife has gone for Ballabriggs, my 4 year son picked out Quinz and my nearly 3 year old daughter pointed at Comply or Die (we start em gambling young around these parts!).

    But sadly Buick didn't far well with water
