Yes i have many spurs dvd,s and have watched them quite a few times over the years.

I think this prize will be Spurs 5 Arsenal 1. (Spurs 5 Ar5ena1) (league cup game)

From memory its all the game plus interviews etc etc.

Prize for the winner will be sent to tom tom (if thats ok tom?) to pass onto the winner of journo,s comp.

All postal costs are mine.

Would be nice to see some of the non racing forum members have a go.

Racecards for the days racing at aintree can be found on sky sports racing.

Some of you non racing enthusiasts could even use the selections of your newspaper tipster.

Its all free and many thanks to journo for taking the time to organise things.

I can send the prize direct tom ! i was being mindful of members privacy.

It could be sent to the winners workplace or local pub ! care of a mate or something like that ?

Years ago you could have post sent to your local post office to pick up at your own leisure but i am not sure if they still do that.

yes understood Beagle and some may not wish their address passed on, hence I said let's see who the winner is before we decide! workplace or pub is a good idea.

I don't think you can send post to the post office unless you're a business signed up to "local collect" - e.g. Amazon. Not a service they offer to everyone any more.

getting closer!! just out of curiosity any one having a punt in the Irish National today? Elliot determined to be Irelands top trainer ahead of Willie Mullins so much so he has 13 runners in the race!! I'm just having a small E/W bet on a Mullins horse at 16/1. :niceone:

To be honest mike i have had 2 bets all season ! one went in at short odds and the other got beaten into 2nd place but that loss puts me down about 50 for the year.

No i am not betting on the irsh national.

If i had a bet today it would be for the mullins horse in the 7th race at cork.....Billaway.

But i will bide my time until later on in the year when the going isnt a bottomless bog.

makes sense, but the Irish horses can handle the boggy conditions a bit better than most. :niceone:

Right in our Narional on Saturday I am doing two horses, both E/W one scottish, one Irish, both a big prices. Fav's priced at around 8/1 or less in a race like that i think is bloody awful, no value at all for the small punter, thats why Im going for big price e/w. :niceone:

Just to let anyone know entering journo,s 3 day aintree grand national meeting comp.

I am donating a spurs dvd to the winner ! at the moment i cant find my Spurs 5 Arsenal 1 league cup game dvd so the prize is Spurs 2 Arse 1.

This is the prem game where danny rose scored that brilliant free kick....! its an official spurs dvd and excellent quality.

I am mindful of members privacy on here so you may be aware that argos and other stores do a collection service ! the winner can pick up from a local argos etc etc.
Argos will give you a collection number/code to quote when you go into collect ! something like eCP:DHUTBGKL.

Of course it can sent direct to you or to a C/O address.


My selections for todays first days racing at aintree.

1.45......Finians Oscar.
2.20......Nube Negra.
2.50......Might Bite (Fav)
3.25......My Tent or Yours.
4.05......On the Fringe.
4.40......Bun Doran.
5.15......Midnight Referendum.

Good luck guys.

Very competitive racing at the national meeting so i will probably not be investing any money betting there ! but i may have a few quid at Limerick 2.35. Last Minute Man.
