Surely this year is your lucky year when it comes to the Grand National?
Luck has never seemed so simple after a couple from Scunthorpe, David and Kathleen Long, won £1m in the EuroMillions draw last week - the second time they won the jackpot in two years.
Therefore, come this Saturday at 4:15pm, it will be well worth a flutter on one of the 40 runners taking part in the Grand National at Aintree.
The odds are still as difficult as ever however: in the 68 races of the post-war era, only nine favourite or joint favourite horses have won the race.
To help you decide, The Independent's Kevin Garside provides some sound advice on picking your own favourite.
