A BETTING bonanza is on the cards for the Grand National in honour of a runner with a Manx name.

Nine-year-old Manx Magic is expected to be among the 40 horses competing in one of the biggest sporting events of the year, held tomorrow (Saturday).

In recognition of the name, bookmakers' chain Joe Jennings is offering a special bet on the horse. The odds on it winning as the Manx Independent went to press were 66-1 on Friday, but Joe Jennings has agreed to pay out over the odds to local punters if Manx Magic romps home.
