Grand National 2018 - Winners

Grand National 2017: Major Winners

By all accounts, the 2017 Grand National was an immense success, and not only for those affiliated with One For Arthur following his stunning home-stretch dash for victory.

The 170th renewal of the prestigious meeting at Aintree Racecourse saw the fairy tale triumph realised by jockey Derek Fox, just one month after breaking his wrist and collarbone in a fall at Carlisle. The splendid victory also came with the added bonus of signifying only the second ever Scottish-trained victor and a fourth female winning-owner in Lucinda Russell.

One For Arthur, an eight-year-old trained in Kinross, proved to be one for Scotland when he out-jumped and outstayed his thirty-nine rivals to win the famed steeplechase in style. Backed by Arthurs up and down the land as well as the majority of Scotland, the impressive runner was sent out at 14/1.

Despite struggling to adjust to the strong pace in the opening mile, One For Arthur soon found his form and finished the race like a steam train. At one stage he was twenty lengths back behind the pace-setting Rogue Angel but he steadily crept back into the contest to eventually lead thanks to some truly sublime jumping.

At the two furlong run-in, One For Arthur had firmly established himself at the front of the chasing pack and never looked like surrendering his lead. He came home to collect the first prize in true style, beating runner-up Cause of Causes by four and a half lengths. A tremendous result for jockey Fox and trainer Russell.
