AN EX-FELSTED pupil has high hopes of becoming a Grand National winner tomorrow (Saturday) after his horse was rated as race favourite.
My Will, rated by bookies as a 7- 1 chance, is predicted to do well at this year's meeting at Aintree.
Owner Andy Stewart will be crossing his fingers that his horse, trained by Paul Nicholls and ridden by Ruby Walsh, will cross the finish line first.
Mr Stewart, 57, was educated at Felsted Schools during his early years but left the boarding school in 1967 before kick-starting his career in horse racing.
