Grand National Luck! Itâ€™s All In The Stars!
The great British betting public seek inspiration in many forms when trying to pick a winner and Saturdayâ€™s John Smithâ€™s Grand National will be no exception as half the adult population attempt to find a winner in the famous race.
Some punters scour the horoscope pages this weekend to see if their luck is in for the National â€“ but maybe they should check out the horseâ€™s fortunes instead!
Bookies William Hill have worked out the zodiac of this yearâ€™s 40 runners and now you can have a flutter on their star signs!
William Hill spokeswoman Jennie Prest said, â€œMany people have traits attributed to their own sign, and there is no reason why horses should be any different! This year, Taurus is favourite â€“ which coincidentally was the sign of last yearâ€™s winner Mon Mome.â€™â€™
