The Grandest Grand National Competition Ever

Posted on April 10, 2010 by  

Yes it is Aintree time again and the great British public all have an opinion on who will win the Grand National.

In reality most tipsters, punters and grannies will just pull out their Racing Post’s and a rather large pin in order to find the likely winner on Saturday.  But if you want more of a chance of getting a little something back from the big race then we have a fantastic competition with some top prizes.

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 with the phase, “My word Darren you are such a 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” in the subject line or just “Grand National Comp” will do!

The winners will be the nearest 5 (yes 5 top prizes) whose totals are closest to the total of the official result of the race.

So for example if you pick the first four from our list below…..

Tricky Trickster (our number 8 )
Joe Lively (our number 5)
Dont Push It (our number 6)
Big Fella Thanks (our number 22)

That is 8+5+6+22 = 41 (click here is you need any help with that, only joking!!)

Even if you don’t know one end of a horse from the other just pick a number between 10 (1+2+3+4) and 154 (37+38+39+40) and you are in.

Like we say we have 5 top prizes, blimey these are so good, I will have to have a go myself…..

In the event of a tie then the places will be drawn at random from the matching entries.

Entries close at 4:00 on Saturday 10th April 2010.
List of results will be published once the official result has been confirmed and all winners will be notified via email.

The final decision is ours, full stop. No discussions. We will send the boys round if you are not happy etc…etc….

Just a bit of fun with the added excitement of some excellent prizes, a great big thank you to all our sponsors.  And even if you don’t win do check out each of these services, every one is top draw and comes with a big bet72 thumbs up (especially that BetSeventyTwo private members club, fantastic).
