Online PR News – 25-March-2010 – – Mon Mome to beat big fella - THANKS! Mon Mome was the 100/1 Grand National wonder that took everyone by surprise when he won the Aintree Grand National last year. Last week he reconfirmed that he has fire in his belly and is racing towards the finishing line ahead of fellow contenders Big Fella Thanks (10/1), Tricky Trickster (14/1) and Niche Market (12/1). Punters are backing him more than ever now that Mon Mome is a known quantity to be reckoned with. Trainer Venetia Williams told 'Grand National Free Bet': "His preparation has gone a lot better than it did last year and we have got a blueprint to follow. We were all very buoyed by what we saw him do at Cheltenham. "It might have been a bit cheeky running in the Gold Cup as a prep race for the National, but there was £50,000 for third place and we were delighted with what he did. The hill at Cheltenham compensated for the extra mile he will get in the National." Mon Mome started off at 25/1 before his well deserved third place in the Cheltenham Gold Cup and is now 10/1 with most bookmakers. On 'Grand National Free Bet' at Irish bookmaker Paddy Power is still offering a 12/1 along with a very generous 'Bet £/€10 GET £/€20 Free Bet'.
