Cambridge: Grand National Winner?

A mathematician from Cambridge has come up with what he thinks is a formula to predict the winner of the Grand National.

William Hartson looked at four criteria: the horse's age, the number of letters in its name, the first letter of the name and the number of words in it.

He has this prediction for the race: "The scoring system I have has a maximum score of sixteen points, there's four points for each of the four categories, and Seabass scored thirteen out of sixteen, scoring consistently high in all the categories and coming out ahead of all the other horses".

The Grand National takes place at Aintree tomorrow (Saturday 6th April).
