I am not sure,i just took the odds from a bookies website. (adjusted them slightly)

Here's a bit of a guide to form and what weight they are carrying.

And the winner was....

Quote:
Mon Mome 50/1


The actual official bookies winning price was 100/1 , the longest priced winner of the national since foinavon won at 100/1 in 1967.

As you may expect nobody chose the winner.

Result.

1st:Mon Mome 100/1
2nd:Comply Or Die 14/1
3rd:My Will 8/1
4th:State Of Play 14/1

Since there is a lot of riders to choose from, and not that many people will probably play this game, next time you should do like the best placing rider that the frihoster chose could win.

I hope that made sense...

ahh... like, if A,B and C are frihosters... and X,Y, and Z are riders, then
lets say,

A chose X
B chose Y
C chose Z

and,

X came 9th
Y came 6th
Z ame 3rd

then the winner(frihoster) is C......?

In the case of the Grand National,there are a lot of riders,but this years race was exceptional in terms of who won,as the winner usually comes from the first 5 or 6 horses in the betting.

Also the whole point of this,is that i am the bookmaker,its not a sweepstake where somebody always wins.

If somebody chooses a winner,the bookie loses,if nobody chooses a winner,the bookie gains,that's how bookmakers operate. Or even if someone chooses the winner,but enough people don't,then as long as they take more than they pay out,the bookie wins.

In the real world,the bookie almost never loses,as they usually have more losing bets than winning ones.
