Betfred Boss Toasts Pineau National Victory

The drinks are on Betfred boss Fred Done this evening after Pineau De Re saved his firm a huge payout in the Crabbie's Grand National.

Heading into the race the Warrington-based bookmaker, the official betting partner of the Crabbie's Grand National Festival, feared a £1-million loss had plunge horse Shakalakaboomboom crossed the winning post in front.

Eventual runner-up Balthazar King was another springer in the market who would have potentially cost Betfred seven figures.

However, it was 25/1 outsider Pineau De Re who came home in front to the delight of bookmakers across the country.

Betfred boss Fred Done said: "It was the first horsebox I passed on my way to Aintree this morning and he's done me a right favour. I'll be sending a big bottle of champers to the Doctor."

Grand National day is here. 40 horses, 30 fences and four miles. Everybody and anybody is talking about the biggest race of the year and there’s nothing more awkward than not having checked the form. Luckily Paddy Power know how busy you are so they’ve compiled a list of tipster’s tips to give you a hand. Simply pick a tipster you quite like/respect/secretly fancy and go with the one they’re backing.

Who needs to spend hours doing the form-study when you can just copy other people who have already done it?
