What the tipsters said
Find out how the predictions of BBC and newspaper racing pundits fared in the 2003 Grand National.

It's hats off to The Observer's Eddie Fremantle, who tipped winner Monty's Pass a year after napping 2002 hero Bindaree.

Monty was also picked by John Francome (The Sun), plus the Sunday Telegraph (Marten Julian) and The Times (Thunderer).

And the Racing Post's Pricewise recommended the 16-1 winner at 40-1 two months ago.

But the only pair from our 30 listed to select two of the placed horses were award-winning Times journalist Alan Lee and our very own Honest Frank.

Lee had Amberleigh House (third) and Gunner Welburn (fourth).

And Honest Frank, aka journalist Frank Keogh, advised Amberleigh House and Monty's Pass. A 1 each-way bet on his four selections would have yielded a profit of 23.25.

Those tips in full...
