I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "Hey Phil, what was all that about a fine record of predicting Grand National winners? I didn't see Silver Birch on your list of guaranteed (although I realise that wasn't legally binding and I won't be pursuing you through the courts) selections. You've not only let us down, you've let yourself down."
Well hold your horses (literally). Aside from my astonishingly accurate prediction about Joe's Edge, and the fact that if, like me, you'd put £2 on Liberthine each way with Blue Square who paid five places, then you'd still have made a healthy profit despite the other three running like Afghan Hounds on Mother's Day and trying to have a nice sit down at The Chair, yes, aside from all that...
I actually did predict the winner. All I got wrong was the year.
I always knew I was ahead of my time.
