14/1 The Last Samurai For The National (2017)

William Hill Sports
The AW season ends as far as I'm concerned the first day of summer, ie last saturday. Since then I've had nothing but 2nd's, many of whom have looked like winning, only to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, so I'm off on holiday for a week. Shoulda went last week to be honest.

I will return next saturday, which is National day. Weather forecast for the week is good, so I will be backing The Last Samurai (14/1) to avenge last years 2nd place, heartbreak up the run in beating by 33/1 shot Rule The World.

Good luck with your National bets, you're gonna need it haha.
