Bookmaker Dwain Chambers has been offering odds of 10,000 to 1 on the Queens horse Norfolk n Chance completing both circuits of the gruelling Aintree Race Course let alone win the race.
Irish expert horse racing tipster Paddy O'Doors has commented that "Chambers knows a thing or two about runners and that he would be able to spot if Norfolk n Chance had been nobbled to win or nobbled to lose."
The horse which was recently purchased by the Queen at the Paris Longchamp Sales for a mere 400 Guineas was destined for the Knackers Yard in France where it was expected to end up as Sunday Lunch for numerous Parisianers.
Most experts where not surprised by the Queens decision to invest in Norfolk n Chance, as she herself, has ridden a few stallions in her time, and her husband the Duke of Edinburgh has ridden for pleasure all his life.
The Queens Trainer Ginger O'Toole who is based in Blackpool has been getting the horse back to peak fitness by using it for donkey rides on the sands.
O'Toole said "just in case the old hack does not perform in the National at least I can make a few bob for the Queen this summer down on the beach."
Inside information is that the horse has an outside chance if Dwain Chambers contacts the right people.
