All 38 Grand National runners safe despite 26 falls

Minella Rocco

Eight-year-old Tiger Roll, who scored at odds of 10-1 for jockey Davy Russell, has fast become a crowd favourite, having already won the Glenfarclas Cross-Country Chase at Cheltenham, adding to his previous triumphs at Prestbury Park in the Triumph Hurdle and the National Hunt Chase.

Meanwhile, Tiger Roll came in first at the Grand National in a photo finish with Pleasant Company.

Mullins, who is assistant to his father, said on Sunday morning: "Pleasant Company ran an extraordinary race".

"Pleasant Company probably did a little bit too much with me but I had to let him go after jumping The Chair - he just winged fences".

Racing.com's own Matt Hill was in the United Kingdom, after earning the chance to call the famous race for BBC Radio 5 Live.

Looking at the opposition, Anibale Fly is a real class horse, who ran a great trial, if you can call it that, to finish third in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, while Total Recall was being talked of as a serious National horse when he won the Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury back in December. His next start came in the same race last month, when he was running well before getting exhausted as you'd expect for a horse returning after a year off. I thought I had it, but you're so nervous watching it.

NFL Draft: Projecting a RB at each pick for the Eagles
The New York Giants take no chances and trade up with the Browns to secure arguably the best quarterback in the draft. And if the 49ers aren't high on any of the top DBs or LBs, they would likely be looking to trade back.

'This one is for Pat Smullen, ' he said directly after the biggest win of his career. I can't believe it, to be honest.

'I was up this morning, into work for eight, mucked out, rushed home, rushed to Tesco to get a load of candies and cake for Neil's staff so they'll all be having some breakfast on Monday morning.

"When Gordon first won the National, I thought "Who the hell is he?', and it was only when he started racking up lots of winners at places like Ayr and Perth that I thought, 'This is something different", he said.

The Grand National official Twitter account tweeted after the race: "37 of the 38 horses have returned to the stables after the #GrandNational Saint Are remains on the track and is being seen to by medical staff. Let's hope he pulls through".

"I've won this race a thousand times in my head, in my dreams as a child", said Davy.

It's that insatiable thirst for winners, the hunger for competition and the responsibility of providing for a young family - with a wife and four kids, the most recent of which arrived two weeks ago - that sets him apart. "In a war of attrition like that, all you want is another stride".
