Sean Moncrieff and Ladbrokes invited 'rumpologist' Sam Amos to help predict who will win this year's Grand National.
Psychic Sam Amos can see into her clients’ futures by looking at their bums rather than their palms so Ladbrokes, along with Newstalk 106-108 FM, flew Sam over to Ireland to read the future in the bottoms of jockeys Paul Carberry and Davy Condon, ahead of their Grand National race on Saturday.
“We talked to Sam on the phone about her extraordinary talents before and so we jumped at the chance to fly her over to get a hold of my arse," said Sean Moncrieff who will have his bum read live on-air at 2pm tomorrow (Friday).
"Trying to predict a winner for The Grand National is a nationwide occupation so what better way to combine the two.”
Reporter Henry McKean headed to Commonstown Stables, the yard of leading trainer Jessica Harrington, in County Kildare with rumpologist Sam who took a closer look at the two jockeys bums... have a watch:
And the winner is...
Psychic Sam predicted: “Paul (Carberry) has a round bottom that's telling me although he's the life and soul of the party, he has settled and really has the eye of the tiger. My reading of his behind is that the rest of the jockeys will have the same view as I do now, heading for the winning post on Saturday."
Rumpologist Sam, who has a number of celebrity clients, went on to view Davy Condon's rear end: "Davy's bottom is square, he's quite determined and I think he's going to do better than anticipated. I'm getting a strong sense of him finishing around fifth."
Carberry, who landed the race in 1999 on Bobbyjo, will ride leading fancy Monbeg Dude, while Condon will partner Raz De Maree, currently a 50/1 chance with Ladbrokes for the race.
Hayley O’Connor of Ladbrokes said of Sam's prediction: “We'll be on the bones of our backsides if Carberry wins the big one again. Monbeg Dude looks sure to be one of the best backed horses on the day and now we know he'll have one of the best backsides on top to help him."
Asked what he thought of his rumpology reading, Carberry said: "If the other jockeys are all staring at my arse as we cross the line in front on Saturday afternoon it will be the best feeling ever. I will send a plaster cast of my bum to Sam as a thank you."
And naturally we couldn’t leave Moncrieff out of the fun!
