Lucky Vane, I’m keeping a note of people’s votes for my King of the National competition and a couple of voters have been missed from the last table update. I’m posting from my phone so it’s a bit awkward copying and pasting the table for update purposes so I will repost their votes for you.

Thanks for that IR, my own reckoning was the was 14 missing points somewhere. Will check over sometime then I will add my personal vote.
Subject to there being no shock late NRs here is my final verdict.
6pts – ANIBALE FLY (NAP)
5pts – Tiger Roll
4pts – Blaklion
3pts – Seeyouatmidnight
2pts – Regal Encore
1pt – Baie Des Iles
As ever let’s hope, first and foremost, all the horses and jockeys return home safely. If I happen to back the winner as well then that’s a lovely bonus.
Good Luck everyone especially Anibale Fly, Tiger Roll and Blaklion backers!!

Ok, so just to prove my victory last year was a fluke, here’s the Out Ciders 2018 selections.
6 Points – Blaklion. Yes he’s carrying more weight but he’s in his prime, given a more conservative ride than last year I think he can definitely improve on last yrs 4th. I believe the Lion will tame the tiger & the other 38.
5 Points – Vicente. Yes he fell at 1st last year, I’ll give him that one. If this one gets into a good rythem I would expect a big run, the ground may be against him for the win purpose but you can’t ignore the form in 2 Scottish Nationals, I can see him grinding em down but not quite getting there.
4 Points – Milansbar. No ground problems plenty of stamina & fantastic relationship with his Jockey, probably letting my heart rule my head with this one, but you never know.
3 Points – The Last Samurai. Similar conditions to his excellent 2nd in 2016, slightly less weight than last yr and seemingly a good prep for the big one.
2 Points – Vieux Lion Rouge 7th in 16, 6th in 17, 5th in 18? Can’t ignore his Aintree record & in the recent Irish National the winner General Principle was 5th in that race last year & no real expectation to improve, VLR 9 years old I do think this could be the forgotten horse.
1 Point – Double Ross. I’m top n tailing my selections with Twisters other runner, ran a great race at Cheltenham, was going well in this race 2 yrs ago when saddle slipped & lost irons so a big price 100/1 shot to round off this year’s selections.
A big thanks to the regulars on here who’s dedication to the worlds greatest race is quite remarkable, I bow to your commitment. Thanks in advance for whoever may be able to update the table & good luck everyone
Gold Present a non runner.
Can I give 5 points to Seeyouatmidnight instead please?
Many thanks

Fantastic reading as every year, hope everyone stays loyal to this site for many years to come. it makes losing my money more enjoyable (even though you guided me to Auroras at 100/1 ante post and Oscar time placed at 80/1, not forgetting 3 irish nationals in a row at 40/1 [got mugged with arkwrisht at the last fence this year])This years bets are;
6 points I Just Know (the best jumper)
5 Points Vieux Lion Rouge ( too young in previous attempts, now the right age)
4 Points Shantou Flyer (still improving)
3 Points Milansbar (great weight, great lady jockey, great stats)
2 Points Houblon Des Obeaux (great chance if he stays out of trouble in the 1st circuit)
1 Point Beeves (has ran some great races and stays well and the price is too tempting)
Good luck team, but i just don’t fancy any of the more fancied horses this year. i hope milansbar overtakes tiger roll in the voting as i feel it has a far greater chance. Saying this i will still have a bet on the teams tip.
Based on the Met Office forecast rain tomorrow and the fact that in the only handicap today the second from bottom weight won,
6. Raz De Maree
5. Ucello Conti
4. Seeyouatmidnight
3. Houblon Des Obeaux
2. Baie Des Iles
1. Milansbar
May surprise a few!
I’m in the business of finding the winner and there are plenty that I have omitted that I believe will place; Anibale Fly, Regal Encore, Milansbar, Final Nudge, HDO but my picks are:
6 Captain Redbeard
5 Total Recall
4 Warriors Tale
3 I Just Know
2 The Dutchman
1 Tiger Roll
…if it pours I will likely switch to the likes of Milansbar, Raz, Final Nudge, Houblon for a proper lightweight slog
6 points Final Nudge nap
5 points Tiger Roll
4 points Regal Encore
3 points Milansbar
2 points Alpha Des Obeaux
1 point Uncello Conti
Best of luck everyone.
6pts ~ Vieux Lion Rouge

6 Points to Seeyouatmidnight (explanation,best handicapped horse in the race , on best form.)
5 Points Tiger Roll
4 Points Total Recall

Seriously, not being silly, complete waste of a vote this year, until we see the final weather picture.
JUST SAYING because people will say , you did’nt say you were doing that. (small minded people, with trust issues)
just got in from majorca so not had chance to catch up with posts or runner/going updates
so decided to go totally left of the field

Still holding off my main bets until Saturday morning now, it’s hard enough to pick the winner without having to guess the going. However the vote closes at midnight so here’s mine.
6pts Tiger Roll (NAP)
5pts I Just know
4pts Bae Des Iles
3pts Regal Encore
2pts The Dutchman
1pt Milansbar
Backed TR and Milansbar only so far, will probably back the rest of my top 6 and add two more depending on the official going on Saturday morning.
Thanks for updating the table in advance and good luck all with your bets.
Before it closes like to register my vote.
With the withdrawal of Gold Present, my nap for since round 2 onward like to bring
Raz De Maree, 1 point for his form in the Welsh National. Soft going and a light weight could play into his favour.
The Next five spots are all recently been worked out by my system.
Looking at those in form, can handle megafields and most likely to stay a marathon trip. It also considers preparation, class, spring form, form in the big meetings and the jockey it has produce a list of 5 which for the first time feels right (to me).
2 points goes to Chase The Spud : Processes all of the above but his recent pull ups suggest that winning may prove a bit of a challenge.
3 points goes to Tiger Roll: Has the form to win, but Timeform gives him a squiggle meaning he’s temperamental
4 points goes to Anibale Fly on decent going could win this, but on soft going may have too much weight. His Gold Cup third has to be respected
5 points goes to Final Nudge creeping into the race with saddlecloth number 38 (at present) means a low weight which in soft going would be a boost. Feel though that he’s a little one pace.
My Nap goes to Milansbar : Yes history could be made on Saturday by Bryon Frost winning on Milansbar, winning the same race that indicated One For Arthur, last year (Warwick Classic) and then second to Regal Flow in the Midlands version shows he’s in good form. His dosage and CMP fits recent winners and Seven himself says his sire Milan seems to pass on stamina to his progeny . His light weight is a bonus.
Thoroughly enjoyed reading the comments of all since stumbling across this site. All the best to all, not only for GN but throughout the weekend. My top 6:
6 Pts. Seeyouatmidnight
5 Pts. I Just Know
4 Pts. Captain Redbeard
3 Pts. Regal Encore
2 Pts. Warriors Tale
1 Pt. Shantou Flyer
Have left a few early fancies behind, which I may regret, not least Total Recall. Never an easy call but that’s part of what what makes it so much fun..
