Horse Racing: Suit must face the Bullet in National semi.

THATS THE BULLET and Suit Man, ante-post joint-favourites for the William Hill Grand National, go head-to-head in the semi-finals at Wimbledon on Friday, writes Richard Birch.

There was only six spots between them according to calculated times in Saturday's first round - even though Thats The Bullet won his heat by five lengths and Suit Man was beaten a neck.
