THE NHS were the big winners on Saturday as the Virtual Grand National went off without a fuss.
It was just a bit of fun in a world without very little entertainment and bookies reported average stakes of £2 so everyone kept it sensible and of course profits went to charity.
I thought Tiger Roll would win for a hat-trick and that would have been a headline maker but it was Potters Corner who took the honour with the favourite placing.
Again the Belarus games didn't go to plan with two out of three short-priced favourites losing and I won't be having a punt on Sunday's games at Bgu Minsk, Vitebsk and Isloch.
Well done to any winners on Saturday and good luck to those having a bet on Sunday as Belarus is joined by week one of the Tajikstan league.
On the pools there were again eight score draws and from my selections I picked four out of eight which was again a decent effort but remember it's like doing the lottery so don't play it for seriously stakes.
