Having watched the grand national on BBC from as far back as i could remember this game allowed me to hack around Aintree on some of the famous horses of the 80's.To most people this game would hold little appeal but for anyone with an interest in the gee gees jumping over the chair and beechers brook is great fun..controls are simple left and right and increase and decrease speed and the jump button for clearing those daunting spruce fences but watch your energy or you will see your horse empty out fairly quickly if you are not careful..Also the game features a betting section and you can bet on yourself or other horses in the race.In 1985 you could bet on other horses in a race and get away with it ha ha.
