Anybody follow horses? The big race of the year is coming up on saturday! Looking forward to it. Me and my dad had 3 winners today with the first day at aintree. Unfortunatley my dad didn;t trust my choice and only stuck £1 on it!!!

If we had backed all 3 to win from the start we would have made £3000!!!!

Oh well, £40 up is better than nothing!

Who's everyone backing? If anyone?

I have absolutely no idea about horses.

By the way, isn't Aintree a place near Liverpool?

Indeed it is Arka.  I'm working then, in a bookies, so I'm only choosing a horse tomorrow after I know whats the most popular horse, then we are sending someone fron our shop to go to James Dean to but the bet on.  Not allowed to bet in our own bookies (William Hill).

It is actually a district of Liverpool, just spent a few days there.  Interesting to drive down the Melling Road, right through the centre of the racecourse.
