The great bet72.com Grand National competition is now up and running.
Simply select the four horses you think are going to finish ahead of the rest (in any order), add their numbers up (as listed below) and email your answer to email@example.com with the phase, “My word Darren you are very generous chap, I am going to tell everyone I know, that I meet in the street, that I see in the pub etc….about the fantastic bet72.com” in the subject line or just “Grand National Comp” will do!
The winners will be the nearest 5 (yes 5 top prizes in this baby) whose totals are closest to the total of the official result of the race.
In the event of a tie then the winner will be drawn at random from the matching entries.
All numbering to be used pre and post race is as listed at bet72.com (and nowhere else!).
Entries close at 4:10 on Saturday 4th April 2009.
So for example if you pick the first four as:
My Will (our number 11)
Comply or Die (our number 5)
Butler’s Cabin (our number 17)
L’ami (our number 23)
That is 11+5+17+23 = 56 (click here is you need any help, only joking!!)
The final decision is bet72′s, full stop. We will send the boys round if you are not happy etc…etc….

Ireland’s largest bookmaker PaddyPower today announced it will be paying five places in the 2009 John Smith’s Grand National.
Last year’s Irish Grand National winner Hear The Echo remains inseparable from the JP McManus-owned Butler’s Cabin by the bookmaker in their Grand National betting.
Hear The Echo sprung a 33-1 surprise when romping home in the Powers Whiskey Irish Grand National for Mouse Morris and Paddy Flood. Paddy Power have left the Michael O’Leary-owned 8-year old unchanged as their 14-1 joint-favourite as this year’s weights were released today.
Butler’s Cabin, who was travelling well when falling at the second Becher’s last year joins Hear The Echo at the top end of Paddy Power’s betting. Last year’s winner Comply Or Die is quoted at 18-1 with Powers.
