Most Exciting Grand National Ever! Foinavon Wins Grand National after Huge Pile Up Causes Race Shambles. The 1967 Grand National was the scene of one the most notorious pile ups in Grand National history . Foinavon had odds of 100/1 to win the race. Even his owner Cyril Watkins did not bother to attend Aintree because the chances of a win were wholly improbable. As expected, Foinavon did not play a competitive part in the race until at the 23rd fence, a loose horse cut across the riders causing all the horses to either fall, unseat their riders or refuse to jump. Foinavon and his rider, John Buckingham, are so far behind that they manage to bypass the shambles, jump the fence and take a lead of 200 yards. Although most riders were able to remount, no one managed to quite catch up with horse and rider. Sadly no owner or trainer were in the winners enclosure to congratulate them!
From an author who devises and tests his own systems, this book describes how, during the winter of 1991/2, he applied his ideas at the racetrack and took over #1000 per month from bookmakers. It details the exact methods he used and explains the precise reasons behind every bet made.
Mordin has emerged as one of the more intelligent racing pundits in recent years so this book is worth getting. He discusses various aspects of assessing a race, such as class, going, speed and weight. It's good stuff and thought provoking.
In this sequel to "Betting for a Living", Nick Mordin explores how a bit of intelligent observation of horses in the paddock can greatly assist racegoers' efforts to make a profit, and can help to form the basis of a betting strategy.
The book illustrates a good understanding of the racehorse. It is full of easy to read analysis of what can affect a racehorses performance with key pointers to look for.
