OK Bhoys/ Ghirls ITV are showing the "Virtual Grand National" today at 5pm on the main ITV channel (STV Scotland)
ALL bookmaker profits are being
donated to NHS and you can donate also as well as having a wee bet on race, maximum allowed is £10 or £10each way. This race is unique and because of the charity nature of it, bookmakers are NOT ALLOWED to shorten the price of any horse despite lots of money going on a horse.
It has been reported that oodles of money is being placed on Kimberlite Candy 16/ 1, horse I was going to bet on REAL race was Burroughs Saint 12/ 1. All bookies go 5 places.
Why not relieve the lockdown boredom AND help the NHS.

Timalloy as someone who has a big interest in horse racing I can’t take this virtual stuff seriously. I realise it’s problably a bit of fun for some, but not everyone has an online account like me, so with the betting shops closed its unfair on the ordinary punter who can’t get a bet on this cartoon version of the National. And to be honest with bookmakers informing people that there has been heavy betting on certain horses, come on you can’t take that information seriously, but if people want to have a bet so be it, I’ll hold on to my money until racing resumes. Best of luck if you do have a bet.

@oldkilly I am looking at it more as a donation to NHS as all profits bookies make go there.
I generally do not like these "cartoon" races as you call them, but the last 3 years they did this before the REAL race they had a winner, 2nd and a third placed. A great deal of thought goes into these events and the computer is "impartial" although it is only as good as the information put into it.
To relieve the boredom and help a good cause I have put my £20 quid on.

Agree Tim. Bit of fun on a Saturday afternoon and NHS benefits. What’s not to like 👍👍.

Going to be a bit of a killjoy here. I've the greatest amount of respect for the NHS, the doctors, nurses and all others who work within that fabulous establishment. But, donating to the NHS is a no no for me when times are like this. The Government ran down the NHS to the point that it's in the state it's in. We all (or most of us) pay through our National Insurance Contributions for the care and attention we need, but the amount of money that the Chancellor dished out could quite easily have paid for the PPE and antigens that the NHS needed. That could have been done over a period of time with the amount of reserves that have been getting built up and all the money that was available - but HS2 versus funding for the NHS was the final straw.

I'll probably get slated for my views but I've been around long enough to see where the main problem lies. I pay into charities and always will, but I ain't doing the job the Government should have been doing in the first place anyway.

Totally agree stengo.

I agree with Stengo, my wife is a nurse and getting paid as normal. I'm self employed and not - like many others, then there are those already layed off and those reliant on food banks.

If the bookmakers are going to donate all profits to the NHS from today’s virtual national, money that punters are placing today, why just today they have made hundreds of millions over the years, if they are that concerned about the NHS they should have donated before today.
