Great job by Gavin sheehan , mind you the leader was emptying fast over the last !


This is plain disgusting and abusive. The hard continuous whips, and deadly jumps. These horses are forced to run at unnatural speeds while being whipped hard.

What heart and courage both the winner and the horse who hung on for second just showed. The Hallmark of the Thoroughbred…

I watched the race live. This was a great ride by Gavin. He had to 'ride ' Nessfield Blue from a long way out. He did not give up which other riders may have done . He stuck at it,which takes some doing and a lot of strength, and came out the winner. Great performance .

Pulling the whip on the eventual 2nd place.
Bloody hell the poor thing barely got over the last fence asking for more under those circumstances does not look good. Other than that that bit of aw 4f out seemed to suit the winner.

That part of the track is polytrack?


You are mistaken, this was the finish of the 1973 grand national 🏇🏇

Probably get a 21 day ban for trying to hard on the winner.

Great perseverance Gavin. I used to ride out for Pat Murphy 25 years ago, nice to see that he's still going and getting the odd winner

Trevor Luft

Just topped up my gas and electric with that winner

The peck at the last killed his momentum
