Xpresso and the Grand National

My husband and I are not regular gamblers, but yesterday we took part in a sweepstake for the biggest horse-race in England, the Grand National.  We drew names from a hat when we had lunch at my favourite cafe in Northern Ireland –  Xpresso.

I can recommend the coffee and the lunches at Xpresso, which is located in the Inspire Business Centre, Carrowreagh Road, Dundonald, but I’m not so sure about their horse-racing tips.  Here’s a photo of our picks for the big race.

Like me, they’re happier eating their lunch than jumping over fences.

      It was all true. We really did go to Xpresso for lunch, we really did put money on two horses….but OK you’re right, the donkeys weren’t entered for the big race.
