Today is turning out to be Mascot Grand National Day on Pies, and that’s no bad thing. Here’s a YouTube clip of the 2000 MGN, which turned out to be the tightest finish in the event’s history. A brave effort from Cyril the Swan (Swansea’s mascot), who looked like a winner until Harry the Hornet (Watford) stormed to victory with a perfectly timed sprint finish.

    Does the video of Harry the Hornet winning the 2000 Mascot Race still exist anywhere? There is a heated debate in the office here, involving L*ton fans who say that Harry cheated by wearing running shoes instead of his hornet feet! Horrendous accusations.
