Shakalakaboomboom is The Spoiler’s 2012 fancy

As half of Merseyside spill down to London for a Wembley derby more eagerly anticipated than Kenny Dalglish’s post-defeat interviews with Geoff Shreeves, plenty will trek in the opposite direction for the Grand National.

The Atletico Madrid of horse races, complete with illustrious history, big crowds, high expectations, chaos at every turn and very few involved lasting the distance, returns for its 165th instalment at 16:15 on Saturday.

The Templegate of Spoiler HQ, Thomas, has been crunching numbers, figuring out formulae and compiling spreadsheets (ah, those were the days) and his tireless work has left him with a list of seven possible winners.

Of those, there is no doubt which one we’re pinching as the Spoiler pick of 2012, the brilliantly named Shakalakaboomboom, the 16/1 fourth favourite ridden by Cheltenham Festival hero Barry Geraghty.

    What a joke of a website this is now. Lose all the betting shite and start posting regular, funny pieces.
