    The TD 2021 Grand National Sweepstake.

    Organised one of these a few years ago and it seemed quite popular.

    The rules are simple..

    Anyone who posts in this thread gets accepted into the sweepstake.

    No money involved, just for fun .

    If 10 members post then they will get 4 randomly selected horses each.

    Will post up the 40 finsl contenders tomorrow .

    For now ...

    On a similar note:

    Jockey Adrian McCarthy regretful after ban for being 1,000 times over cocaine limit:

    Jockey Adrian McCarthy regretful after ban for being 1,000 times over cocaine limit - BBC Sport

    Now, I'm no expert on cocaine limits, but surely the limit in the case of anti-doping is zero?

    So the amount to be over 'zero' would entirely depend on what units you are measuring in, right?

    The limit for horse riding is 150 nanograms per millilitre. McCarthy had a reading of 150,300 ng/ml.

    They must have messed about with his Sat nav again and sent him on a magical mystery tour to Wales again, otherwise he would have been all over this thread like a three legged donkey.
