    I thought four died?
    It was the first National for a while where no horse was killed.

    Except for last year, and 2014, and 2013...

    The fatality rates are higher than in steeplechases overall, but they are still only a little over 1 in 100 horses

    I'm talking about horses which have died as a result of the Grand National. Although it those years, horses did not die on the course, some died several days/weeks later as a result of the injuries sustained.

    If working on that basis, how can you claim that this Grand National was bloodless, we are yet to see. Also, that figure for 1 in 100, and the no fatalities in 2013-15 does consider fatalities due to injuries.

    Short answer - No
    Long answer - We obviously have political differences and we like to criticise each other political differences however she has been taking my critism of her beliefs to heart and she is being very difficult .... Probably ladies time of the month as well I'm expressing my annoyance of the current situation
