    Come on then, whose had a bet on the Grand National today?

    Me and my housemate have a joint bet, £6 each. We have £4 each on 2 horses to win and then £2 each on 2 more horses each way.

    Come on you beauties!!!! Make us some money!

    Anyway else hoping for a cash windfall at 4-30ish?

    I usually have a vested interest in one horse on the national cos it's normally me that organises the office sweep, not this year tho, I wasn't in work cos of me aching love spuds. :eek:


    I'll just be an impartial viewer this year.

    I can't concentrate on the Grand National cos I'm listening to a live webcast of AFC Wimbledon Vs The Met Police. We're 1-0 up and if we draw or win, we win the league and go up for the 2nd year in a row!!!!

    As a proud owner of a Yorkshire Dons Badge I'd like to wish AFC Wimledon all the best. Lets hope they get back up there where they belong.
