    Virtual Grand National 2020 - Tips inside!

    It could be months before proper racing.

    As this is a computer generated simulation, there must be some logic to the eventual outcome.

    On this basis I reckon this is a decent betting proposition.

    Anyone got any logical thought process as to any likely winners.

    I reckon with a collective effort, we could nail this race. If you take the factors they will input into the machine.

    In fact I reckon Ryan could work it out.

    I was with The Storyteller a long way out and targeting a high quality hurdle race, and putting up a high quality performance, suggests there’s plenty to come over fences.
    Only one angle of course...

    Do you think we can rule out 7 year olds?
    Would the computer throw them out ?
    I reckon so

    I think a computer is likely to rule out horses on their highest ever marks also. At least experienced older ones in any case.

    Got incredibly bored at work and decided to use the National stats that I track to do something similar for this virtual one to see if the computer has something it favours.

    Based upon those who finished top 6 last 3 years it ran 14 of those top 18 were 8/9 YO and having their 1st or 2nd run at the track, and no one was of odds over 25/1 so seems it takes into account the odds quite a bit as last year no one was over 12/1 in the top 6, which would make sense as its essentially probability and that will be a key thing the algorithm will run it on I guess

    Computer seemed to favour high profile jockeys
