The Intelligent Punter's Guide to the 2015 Grand National
Could there be a fairytale ending for the soon-to-be retiring racing legend Tony McCoy in Saturday’s Grand National, due off at 4.15pm and televised live on Channel 4?
If ‘AP’ does win on the favourite Shutthefrontdoor he’s likely to hang up his riding boots there and then. But there are plenty of potential party-poopers in the 40-strong field.

You can read the whole of my horse-by-horse guide to tomorrow's Grand National - and the key factors we need to bear in mind before placing our bets, here. While here you can listen to an interview with me on the National and the meeting at Aintree on BBC Radio Wales (starts at 1hr22mins)
Good luck with your selections!
