Ready to cast my vote now, and it surprised even me.
First I looked again at the top 60 (ScottyBoy suggested that the field would be made up of the top 60).
I took those which had a career best RPR in current season, or had a winning Official Rating higher or level with their Grand National Official Rating. Also a top 2 in chases with 16 or more runners, and finally a top 3 in chases of 3 miles 3 furlongs or longer.
My list was The Last Samuri, Vicente, Tiger Roll, Chase The Spud, Carole’s Destrier, Raz De Maree & Houblon Des Obeaux.
I took out Vicente because he might not run then the rest I will form my top 6 for this vote.
First I’ll score those who won on or higher their Official Ratings handed by Phil for the Grand National
(Honourable Mention goes to) Houblon Des Obeaux, towards rear and never troubled leaders in last National. Finished a distance 10th. Current best price of 125/1. The is a touch of Deja Vu though. Trained by V Williams and won on a mark of 152 (21 Dec 13) and even of 146 more recently (13 Feb 16). If he can regain that form then he’s not without a chance.
1 points goes to Tiger Roll, who won on a mark of 152 in the “JT McNamara National Hunt Challenge Cup Amateur Riders’ Novices’ Chase” of last year.
2 points goes Carole’s Destrier, form this year has not been up to much but has won on a mark of 152
& in London National of 2015 of 146 (same mark here).
Now for those who shown their best form in the current season.
3 points goes to Raz De Maree a 13 year old who’s been here twice. If it turns into a bog then his light weight and the way he finished in the Welsh version you got to have him, at least as a saver.
4 points goes to The Last Samuri, clearly loves Aintree, not won since March 2016
5 points to Chase The Spud, a newcomer whose best RPR came in November of last year and showed distance and field size to be of no problem when winning the Midlands National holding an entry in the Eider a good run there could see his price tumble.
However my nap must be Gold Present, lacking form at 27 fulongs or longer I decided that his attitude makes him worthy of my top vote. It has been reported that Nigel Twiston Davies has compared his Blaklion to Red Rum, well in the same way Gold Present reminds me of Desert Orchid and that can’t be bad
Updating table a little later in the day.
6 pts Vicente
5 pts cause of causes

My latest six in order of horses backed,
6 points Milansbar nap
5 points Seeyouatmidnight
4 points Regal Encore
3 points Final Nudge
2 points Rathvinden
1 point Pendra
Needed another 3days so this is the best i can do at this point.
6 points Vincente Nap
5 points The Last Samuri
4 points Total Recall
3 points Blaklion
2 points Final Nudge
1 point Alpha des Obeaux
Definetly Red and Bristol De Mee fit but carry too much weight and probably will not run.
To be honest i wont have my new top six for a few days yet i am recalculating everything.
Total Recall big rethink – has got too few runs at 24f or more chase or hurdle.
6 points – total recall
5 points – rock the kasbah
4 points – tiger roll
3 points – bellshill
2 points – seeyouatmidnight
1 point – go conquer
I’m focusing on horses i believe may still be well handicapped. Would need to see some kind of form from #25 in the next 4 weeks though to keep the faith.
Bug thank you to the table updaters.

Will add these to the final table sometime in the morning. Unless they updated beforehand.
I need to do some serious sifting somehow, not going to change up much as no time.
I put up some oldies but still like others! … Bless more than Gas. Most needing softer… could finish way down the track feeling…and I like so many others now! keener on horses like Baie and As de Mee from watching a few races, but I give 1 pt to the rather little Regal Encore, he is little! tho..
Now wondering if Total Recall is upto this distance and as favourite, which is shocking really, thought he’d be an outsider considering but it makes you think fav! Causes we have no idea of form, just an encouraging statement, if he turns up well has to have a massive chance, so I give him 6pts this time and wait for cheltenham and wait until the ground is known, its too tough.

ah, I see what you’ve done there, sorry Neil, I didn’t know you were around ..and I didn’t know it closed tonight! just saw people saying they’d voted on other thread, lots of posts
Hi KJ don’t worry. I will put your new vote in sometime in the morning at a more decent hour. The are still a few more rounds yet and Showlad will be giving us updates on the timetable. I introduce rule 7 so that we could (in theory) add those unaware of future votes and who voted in an earlier round to voice their opinions, come our final and most important round. Maybe adding their voices might boost the winner up the table ;).
Thanks Neil …I said I see what you’ve done, I wasn’t certain what to do there with the table and at this hour!
Can usually rely on kj messing up with at least 1 deadline a year. lol

Was about to post table ESB, luckily I checked before posting, anyway anymore votes will now have to wait for round 3 to open.
LV whilst I commend the inclusiveness of including people who couldn’t be bothered to vote for later rounds I think for the last round (dunno if it’s round 3 or 4) that you should only include the people who do vote. This means we have a clear representation of what people really think come the race.
Some don’t know how many votes we do. And probably think they’re voting in the final round, Mike N and I want to be fair to them as well as the regulars. GALILEO, Miinne, Marko & Pollyowls would have missed their votes in round 2 if I didn’t bring forward their round 1 votes and they all contribute regularly. Guys you’re welcome to vote in later rounds if you want, otherwise I keep using your latest vote for my information.
I’m not even sure what the carrying over is LV? Only those that vote in each round should have their votes counted in that round. Votes don’t ‘carry over’. Cheers.
Round 2 of the Grand National Vote is now concluded.
Many thanks LV and all those that assisted with updates.
Round 3 will open on the first scratchings date of Tuesday, February 27th and will close that week at midnight on the Sunday, 4th March.
LV people should take responsibility for their own actions you shouldn’t have to carry them. There is a thread called voting page there should be no excuses really.
Okay Mike N and Showlad, I’ll drop the new rule. Starting from the next round.
Just a thought for next year…
Is it worth having shorter windows, so that we can get a decent reflection of views without the variation that might come from a major trial being run and having a major impact on how people might vote?
For instance:
Pre Christmas vote
Post entries vote
Post weights vote (closes before the Haydock trial maybe)
Pre Cheltenham vote
Final vote post Cheltenham
(or similar)
Just an idea…..feel it would make the info a more useful reference in future years
Daniel too many in March. Overkill. Works OK as it is.
For me personally anyway. I wouldn’t vote that many times.
OK, so drop a round?
My main point was to make the windows short really
Hi gang,
Just like to take a bit of responsibility [ MIKE N ]
And start the voting for round 3,if that’s ok;
6 – TOTAL RECALL
5 – GO CONQUER
4 – TIGER ROLL
