#Grandnational #memories

It is    here  that   great   racing  day i  always   feel their is a   strange  feeling in the  air on  this   day    you can almost  sense the   excitement in the air  and   although live   over    the  water   from liverpool    it is  strangly   spooky !!

I have  nearly  always bet on the  National   and ignore  races and  horses   for another   365  days  think that is right !!!

I   do  not  understand    really the   form thingy although my dad    has  explained   it to me   on numerous  occassions  for  me to  for get the  next year .

I am still getting over that i  now  put  my own    bets on after  her told   me  afew  years    back  to do it myself !!

I  smirked   to myself this morning as the  lady in the  betting  shop  made  a bee line to help me   how   do u   I am  a once a year  betting  person  ”  ahh  u can just tell ”
I tend  to   do  a mixture   of  going on form   or   the  name    or   just  a mad    fling    which  did  me  fine for  years  but   have  not won for   a while  so going  wrong  somewhere !!!

My dad  only bets  on one  horse  to win as   does not  see    the point of   each way   bets   and   having    numerous horses   !!!   but  each to their  own

I remember  being     diagnosed     diabetic and insisting  on being taken  down to the day  room to watch the tv    no such fun  these   days as   everyone  in hosi   does    their own thing   with  little   tv  screen   .

I   would  not feel the  same  excitement  of    watching the  National  by myself   and  remember a   few  years   back   going to  visit my dad   to be told   he  was  watching  it in a local  pub   , i was    duly    horrified    y   was nt  he   watching  it    with me   it was   what  we do  each  year   he   was  gobsmacked    by my disappointment    nothing  to   do with the  horse  race but  he   wasnt  doing  what   we  always do !!

My  mum  does   not bet  any more  she used    to due to  the   horses  being hurt   everyone   to their own views    on this  but   the  race is    much safer    these  days  and has  been going on  for     roughly  175   years    with   really  not that  many casualties

well  its  all  over  and  McCOY   came   5th   and  i had  done  him to win   but i enjoyed  the  excitement  and looking forward to the  excitement   this  time  next year !!
