We all love the Gee Gees

I wouldn’t be ukffs favourite (and only) tipster if I didn’t have an interest in the GGs, (I’ve always loved Danielle Lloyd and that Jordan bird!)
Seriously though, The Grand National is the daddy of horse races and this years features a supposedly bigger sure thing than them two horse lovers turning up at a Man U xmas party.


Cloud Nine is the biggest favourite since Red Rum with bookies predicting he will be less than 4-1 by 4:15 on Saturday. That is massively low and I’m steering clear of that, it would dirten the legendary Longshot name, my forefathers will be looking down on me like dirt, a Longshot backing the favourite, indeed. Plus the fact the favourite has won it only 3 times in the last 20 years & Cloud Nine ain’t even raced over the Aintree fences yet.

I cleaned up at Cheltenham a few weeks back keeping me well in pocket for today’s splurge. If you want to pocket some serious dough, here are few to keep in mind when you’re having a flutter tomorrow. Slim Pickings and Simon are looking good although you might get some excellent value each way with Mon Mome and Hi Cloy at a huge 150/1
Good Luck!

PS:I’ve put up 8 because one or two always pull out before the guns goes of. (Jordan never had that problem with Dwight Yorke!!!)

Slim Pickings 12/1
Simon 13/1
Bewleys Berry 14/1
Butlers Cabin 16/1
Hedgehunter 22/1
Point Barrow 28/1
Mon Mome 33/1
Hi Cloy 150/1

    Yep, bit of a gutter although i got some back with Slim Pickings 4th and Bew;eys Berry 5th. Good old Paddy Power were paying out on the first 5 with 10% bonus so not all bad. Maybe i should stick with the footy!
