Sadly it seems you have to have had your bet365 account since before 3rd April, so new accounts won't get that stonking deal.

However, i've decided to go for a similar approach and bet across the same bunch, albeit with much smaller stakes on each  ;D I usually do 3/4 anyway so this should be interesting! Betvictor 6 places E/W as they are the only ones I have an account with.

Will we see Matt's uncle's tips appear this year? Will anyone actually win and not lose/break even?  :lol:


My uncle is a right nob, I was off ill for a lot of last year, but I text him and he says "I'm not betting this year" then the other day he said to me in the pub "Oh yeah I had last years winner, I just didn't bet on it" ::) :lol:

Now as luck would have it I also had last years winner, however this is due to a bizarre deal on bet365, for every horse you put a bet on they give you half your money back in cash ??? I thought surely this ain't legit, yet it is was, and they're doing it again this year. My "technique" was to just pick a ton of horses so I've done it again albeit this year I've been looking on a gambling forum I know of where there are a couple of horse guys who claim to know their stuff.
So this year I've backed 11 :lol: :lol: it cost me £55 but I've actually got £110 worth of bets on with the deal :ptu:

£5 e/w on all the following,

Anibale Fly 10/1
Rathvinden 10/1
Vintage Clouds 12/1
Jury Duty 20/1
Pleasant company 20/1
Rock The Kasbah 20/1
General Principle 25/1
Dounikos 33/1
Noble Endeavor 33/1
Valseur Lido 66/1
Tea For Two 80/1

edit- note, only 5 places at bet365 but the deal is too good to turn down regardless IMO.
edit - the bet365 offer is "only available to eligible bet365 customers who opened their account before 23:59:59 UK Time on Wednesday 3rd April 2019." https://extra.bet365.com/promotions/en/horse-racing/grand-national-money-back-offer

It's down to religious thinking, and quite a few people really do not trust experts/scientists.

Put out the right carefully selected information and you are bound to get some people believing it, even if it is obviously stupid.

The ISS goes overhead many times every day, satnav depends on transmitters continually orbiting the earth, as does Satellite TV.

Somehow we seem to have missed the 2018 edition, but its back! :worried:

I'll probably go with BetVictor again if they do up to 6th place E/W :thumbup: though I've not made any picks yet.


https://www.oddschecker.com/grand-national/winner <- odds table, remember generally the odds tumble as the event closes in.

Usual disclaimer stuff of don't bet more than you can afford to lose, etc :ptu:

So anyway, yeah, flat earth crazy crazy, I had a discussion with my mate about it yesterday, he said I could just send up a balloon with a camera and prove 100% it's nonsense, I said I'd still be unchanged at ruling it out 99% :lol:

We could, but if you think it will ever be truly over with.

Right now the government is stuck, and I don't see any result being a happy one.

Personally I wish Cameron and the Tory Brexiteers had jumped off a cliff rather than starting this. Corbyn too.
