The owners of Ballibriggs just won over half a million quid by taking out the 2011 Grand National, run at Aintree. Oscar Time ran second with last year's winner, Don't Push It finishing third, about 15 lengths behind the winner. Only 19 horses finished from a field of 40 starters.

Szabs finished third in 2009 and second last year. This year she won! Not sure what will happen next year. smile.

We had quite a large contingent of tipsters, with 16 entrants. I am not sure if this is a record, but it would be close to it.

The countback came into play as FOUR players correctly tipped first, second, third and fifth. Szabs had Ballibriggs as first tip, rxbigdawg had him as his fifth spot and finished second. A further countback was needed to separate two players for third as both had the winner as their sixth tip. Because one had second-placed Oscar Time as his second tip, paper_aero just edged out Sypher.
       Ballabriggs  Oscar Time  Don't Push It  State Of Play  Niche Market
    Tips 9 10 13 2 8

    1 szabs 10 + 6 + 3 + 1 = 20
    2 rxbigdawg 10 + 6 + 3 + 1 = 20
    3 paper_aero 10 + 6 + 3 + 1 = 20
    4- Sypher 10 + 6 + 3 + 1 = 20
    5- illiniman14 10 + 6 + 3 = 19
    6- gtho4 10 + 6 + 3 = 19
    7- BxBarracuda 10 + 6 + 3 = 19
    8- LeoDaVinci 10 + 6 + 1 = 17
    9- triviapaul 10 + 1 = 11
    10- N-Bomb 6 + 3 = 9
    11- ozzz2002 6 = 6
    12- rossian 3 + 2 + 1 = 6
    13- George95 3 + 2 + 1 = 6
    14- JaneMarple 3 = 3

Well done to the top three. A special mention to paper_aero, partly because he's my teammate but mainly because he had to place his tips so early, before the final declaration.

Sympathy also goes to the connections of the two horses killed during the race. The hot weather and hard ground takes its toll.
