A Race Apart

Just under four hours to go before the greatest sporting event of the year. Here's my piece from The Guardian a couple of years back on what makes The Grand National so special. Come on Longshanks! And Simon! And Point Barrow!- and the other half a dozen horses I've already backed! Good luck with your selections too.
Win, lose or draw, let's hope all the runners and their jockeys get back safely.

Backing animal competition is the same as backing capitalism



Two English teams are probably coming to Greece for the Champions' League final. I hope they behave like The Grand National spectators ...
