As I sit here on board my luxury yacht, just moored off Rathlin Island, dressed in cerise sarong and sipping a cocktail, I'd just like to raise a glass to Timmy Murphy.
The Grand National winner came up trumps for me on Comply or Die and as I count out my winnings I got a chance to watch a re-run of the race and consider if a want a red or black Ferrari.
I know who I won't be asking though - Adrian Chiles or Christine Bleakley.
The male half of the One Show duo had earlier watched his beloved Baggies lose in the FA Cup semi-final, West Brom sunk by a big Kanu.
However, his fate was nothing to compare to the lovely Christine, and as it turned out she was rather appropriately bedecked in black for the day.
The One Show has been monitoring the progress of one of the horses, McKelvey, in the run-up to the race but, sadly, a bad tumble and he was no more.
Tonight's One Show should be a right barrel of laughs, although they will have a right bumper crop of rhubarb in the Blue Peter garden this year.
There was quite a bit of blue around Aintree, Clare Balding only a white hat away from being the world's biggest Smurf.
It was hard to keep track with just who was presenting. One minute it was Clare, who looks more like Eddie Izzard by the minute, then it was off round the course with everyone from Richard Dunwoody to John Parrott popping up.
Norman Williamson was in the jockeys' room, seemingly frequented by a never-ending succession of green Smurfs, but as he interviewed Tony Dobbin behind his head popped up a rather blue publication.
I didn't get a close look but housewives were mentioned and the lady in question would have had two black eyes jumping over Becher's Brook.
But this was Murphy's day, and for those of you who didn't know, Clare was keen to spill the beans on a man who has had an interesting past.
"Let's put this into context. This is a man who was in jail three years ago having had an incident in a plane coming back from Japan," she grassed.
And to further put the feet in added helpfully: "He's had a real problem with the drink too." With luck like that, he should be presenting the One Show.
Back to Norman and he got to interview the riders who came in behind Murphy, including David Casey who rode Snowy Morning.
"He ran great, I just wish I'd a bit more balls to hang on to him a little bit longer," he told us.
Thankfully he didn't go on to give us a demonstration of just how he would have done this, probably scared in case Christine or Adrian were walking about with scissors.
