Thread: Grand National

  1. #1

    Grand National

    Hi guys,

    I know nothing about horses, less about horse racing, from the little I have read the only nag with any Welsh connection tomorrow is Potters Corner, being 1/2 owned by Jonathan Davies, is this right and are there any other Welsh jockeys or horses,not worried about the odds, always like to back a horse with some sort of Welsh connection.

    Thanks in advance

    A mate of mine is a co-owner of Potters Corner. Me and a few of my ex-BT colleagues went for a drink before the pandemic hit and my mate told us to get on Potters Corner in the Welsh National. I forgot all about the race and he duly won at a decent price.

    I've never met a gambler who's lost more than they've won in their betting career, and yet..

    I think its just Potters Corner trained by Christian Williams.

    Sadly Secret Reprieve who won this seasons Welsh National who would have had a big chance has failed to make the 40. Maybe it will bring it home to Wales in 2022.

    Potters Corner not without a chance but would prefer softer ground.

    Wonderful first for a female jockey, glad the event now carries less risk to the welfare of the horses and jockeys.

    Re: Grand National

    Yes ! My first winner since Amberleigh House in 2004. I'd almost given up hope of picking another.

    Rachael rode brilliantly at Cheltenham and now at Aintree. Agree with a previous poster who said she should win the overseas sports personality of the year award. At a canter

    Re: Grand National

    It's a great time to stop referring to her as a female jockey. She's a jockey and a bloody good one.

    Horse racing should be banned

    In the wild horses do not go for 2 mile gallops over hedges

    Which makes it even worse

    Bred for pleasure

    I cannot defend fishing and if one day its banned thats the way it is

    The number of deaths at the Grand National , the most cruel of all races is outrageous

    Theres a whole range of sports that there are arguments for banning. Boxing , rugby , ban heading in football.

    Where does it end.?
