Grand National reflections
What if The Druids Nephew hadn’t knuckled over when bowling along in front 4 from home? I’d have been over £150 better off for a start!
Aidan Coleman didn’t deserve to have his hopes snubbed out so cruelly after showing racing in such a great light with his head cam clip in the Topham.
What if Monbeg Dude hadn’t been impeded and had to make up a lot of ground?
What if Soll hadn’t bled when running a great race?
What if connections had decided to put Many Clouds way for the summer after his disappointing effort in the Gold Cup?
But arguably the real heroes were the flag waving Ruby Walsh and the vets who tendered to Blathazar King. Here’s hoping he makes a full recovery.
Then we can truely hail this as a memorable National for all the right reasons.
