Was One For Arthur one we wanted to see win the National?

 

 

Scottish trained One For Arthur romped home in Saturday's big race at Aintree, and while from a bookies perspective it was great to see popular choice Definitly Red take a tumble, Head of Racing James Knight let us in on how the result was received on the Trading floor.

 

“The National totally eclipsed everything else in terms of importance and we'd call the week at Aintree a 'score draw' really," James said. "The National result was one of the better ones for punters in the shops, although we ended up roughly where we wanted to be in retail. Online it was more expensive as we had to pay the fifth place on Gas Line Boy, who proved to be a popular outsider.

 

“One group of customers who were really celebrating were our Scottish shop customers, who supported their local horse and Scotland was by far the worst performing region for Ladbrokes Coral Group.

 

“The rest of Aintree went our way with favourites like Top Notch, Cue Card and On The Fringe beaten on Thursday and a shock handicap winner of the Topham, Ultragold, helping margin on Friday.”

A number of people advocating that the Grand National be discontinued. A petition has been raised.

 

Thoughts?

No way Hairy,

I would even go as far to say that 40 fences and a shade over 4 miles is a tad too little.

Bring back the real National suffragettes and all. Don't give in to the minority dribble.
