Generator gives you a horse to cheer on in the Grand National based on your football club

Ahead of the Grand National this weekend, many punters and casual racing fans will be struggling to make a decision on who will win the biggest race in the calendar.

Some people like to choose their horse using statistics and form, others choose purely on instinct, while sometimes the best name or colours can capture public imagination.

The Racing Post have closely associated each horse running in the Grand National, with a football club from the top four divisions of English football, and the Scottish Premiership, in order to help anyone struggling to pick their winner this Saturday.

Some of our favourites:

We’ve tried the generator a few times and picked out some of our favourite results. Whilst we’ve only picked out five, there is a horse for every club in the Premier League, Chamionship, League One, League Two or the Scottish Premiership.

Manchester United – Run Wild Fred

Brazilian midfielder Fred is known to run wild on the Old Trafford pitch, and Gordon Elliott will be hoping for a more composed performance from strong stayer Run Wild Fred.

Watford – Fiddlerontheroof

Fiddlerontheroof has had three different jockeys in the last 14 months, the same amount of managers that Watford have fiddled their way through since January 2021.

Birmingham City – Cloth Cap

Peaky Blinders might have finished but the Blues will be hoping that Cloth Cap makes a bit of a comeback here.

Stoke City – Enjoy D’Allen

Enjoy D’Allen oozes a bit of class and Stoke midfielder Joe Allen often strolls around midfield with the same attitude. Enjoy Joe Allen.

Celtic – Dingo Dollar

Aussie Head Coach Ange Postecoglou has a Dingo Dollar or two.
