Grand National 2017

The weights will be confirmed on February 14th so i think it is time to start this thread. If Peanuts returns he can give us the benefit of the famous model but until then has anyone got any comments? I think The Last Samurai will be top weight and Don Poli will be withdrawn as he is more likely to be aimed at Cheltenham. An alternative to finding the winner is to lay a loser on Betfair. With this in mind i backed Just A Par at 170 and put in a lay offer at 100 which i am sure will be taken in due course.

  • Without PeanutsMolloy, I have literally not a clue.

  • Please @PeanutsMolloy, come back!!!
  • Last Samuri and One For Arthur. They're the two you defo want ante post. I'd say maybe Ziga Boy, too.
  • Would love Peanuts to come back won't be the same without him, hope he knows he feels appreciated

    One For Arthur is rated 137 so unless there are a lot of withdrawals he is unlikely to run
  • This thread just doesn't feel right.
    No offence to len90 but it does seem a bit Sandy Toksvig replacing Stephen Fry.

    I did know that Stephen Fry enjoyed his racing but unaware that Toksvig did.
  • Has anyone sent out a search party? After all there cannot be too many people called Peanuts Molloy...
  • Dear Mr Molloy

    Don't want to find out what you've been taking
    Don't want to read about the love you're making
    Don't want to hear about the lives you're faking
    Don't want to read about the muck

    (but we do really need your Grand National model)

    PEANUTS PEANUTS PEANUTS!

    I Googled him and got over a million results. The top one is called the afterword. He posted 16 days ago.

  • Peanuts has sent us a message:

    Three dead horses were found dumped in Charlton within two weeks.

    Two horses were found in a car park in Springfield Grove on Saturday morning (February 4), in a parking space between two maintenance vans.

    They were malnourished, neglected and unkempt, with their ribs showing.

    Two weeks before another dead horse was found at the entrance of Charlton Athletic Football Ground in a similar state.

  • Gordon Elliott has said Outlander the top weight will not run.
  • Goodtoknow has a featherweight.
  • going this year as mrs got me for xmas tickets and we have booked trains up and staying in manchester for the weekend, the thought of venturing out in liverpool with a load of pissed up scousers was too much, whats the dress code like there similar to cheltenham or is it a whistle job?.
  • Gordon Elliott has said Outlander the top weight will not run.

    Read that in the RP. Call me a cynic but is this a knee jerk reaction to the animal being allotted 2lb more than its Irish mark and as a result top weight? In which case we should await the confirmatory "that was just an off the cuff comment and it was always our intention to run the animal" After they mopped up the massive prices on Betfair that is.

    Mind you that obnoxious owner of Ryan Air does have three of the top four in the race and a dozen or so in total so it's not as if he's struggling for options.

    Where what you want I should imagine, but best to check the tickets/website for dress code.

    I have to say when we went about 10 years ago it was the best day's racing fighting I've ever seen.

    Those Scally's really do like a punch up. Chav Central . You looking at me ?
  • I have been dining off Peanuts' knowledge for years, I have people only talk to me in early April because of him, hope he returns....
  • Lord Windermere .. Chel G C winner @ 10-5 .. VERY well handicapped if still a fit horse
    Houblon des Obeaux .. 10-7 .. Venetia .. watch out for the jockey booking
    The Young Master .. 10-8 .. Mulholland could be due a big winner
    Carole's Destrier .. 10-12 .. as above

    Ideally shell suit in the same colours as your favoured jockeys silks
  • My advice is lump on The Last Samuri and lay him at a much lower price on the day. Also have an each way bet on Just a Par.

    Excellent news - O'Leary on the front page of the RP venting his spleen at BHA handicapper Phil Smith and says Don Poli won't run. That only leaves him with a dozen Gigginstown horses to pick from!

    If the Irish didn't have this nasty habit of "hiding" their horses' true form Smith wouldn't have to allot them higher marks when running over here.
  • They never had any intention of running Don Poli. He has always been aimed at Cheltenham.
  • I don't know if anyone is still following this but Just a Par won his warm up race yesterday and my lay bet was taken, so a 66.5% profit has been made and Don Poli will not run so whatever you layed him for has also been won.
  • watched the same race @len90 the last sumarai stays all day long, definately red looked good, but think it would get caught.
  • Liked the way Wonderful Charm ran in the Foxhunters but then probably talking through my pocket as I backed it yesterday and prior for the GN at 160 average on Betfair. Nicholls confirmed after the race that, along with the winner, Pacha Du Polder, it heads for Aintree. Still available at 100/1 with Paddy Power/Betfair (100 on the Exchange), it's as short as 25/1 with Bet 365 and Stan James so can't see it going off anything like that 100/1.
