Aachen leads them back into the racecourse
many Clouds going very well
Last Samuri going very well
RULE THE WORLD WINS THE GRAND NATIONAL
Many Clouds was going so well but a bad mistake about six out stopped him in his tracks and he could never recover. Not sure how many finished but it was not that many
Rule The World stayed on so strongly from the Elbow, The Last Samuri had nothing left, Vics Canvas had even less left.
"That's the best feeling in the world," says David Mullins
Michael O'Leary wins Gold Cup and Grand National in the same season. Anyone else done that?
As far as I know, all the horses have come back safe and sound.
Rule The World had never won over fences before today. May as well leave it until you can win a really big race, eh?
David Mullins is 19. Corks.
Twelve horses completed, and you'll have the names when I do
Poor David Bass, rider of The Last Samuri, says that he's absolutely gutted. It's hard to take, it wasn't to be. No-one remembers who came second. Sorry, David.
David Mullins, high on life, has just gone out and won the final race on Ivan Grozny. Absolutely unbelievable.
The margin of victory in the Grand National was six lengths, with eight lengths between second and third.
Hard-luck story: Robbie Dunne performed a circus trick to stay aboard Vics Canvas when that horse all but hit the deck at Becher's Brook first time. It was genius.
We are hearing that Rule The World may now be retired on a high, healthy and happy. Possibly more to follow with that.
What a remarkable, incredible day. The only people who will be disappointed by that Grand National are those at Animal Aid.
