Grand National & Aintree Quick Picks

Evening All , 
                      Its the wee hours as i burn a few candles looking thru tmrw's cards as its the day of the NATIONAL the self professed " greatest show on Earth "...well in truth its a lot tamer these days thanks to the anti everything brigade and the number of casualties over the years the fences are leaner , lower and more malleable so what we have seen generally is a better class of horse both competing and winning although shocks will still be the order of the day and as im rather tired now at the end of a long day i will give my selections in brief...do with them what you will , have fun and GL.
