This is Colnel Rayburn, the number 27 horse in today's big Grand National race. Obviously I bet on it, but sadly it didn't manage to win - though it did keep right in there until the end of the race.

Apparently Colonel Rayburn was a US Colonel who won a point-to-point race in his 70s. The horse was named after him, but whoever filled in the form spelt Colonel wrongly!

STOP PRESS: You'll never guess at what number fence (out of 28 in the Grand National) that my number 27 horse fell. Yes, the 27th!
