One For Arthur wins the 170th Grand National

Definitly Red ridden by Danny Cook, right, on his way to winning the Hillhouse Quarry Handicap Steeple Chase during Ladies Day of the Coral Scottish Grand National Festival at Ayr Racecourse.

One For Arthur has won the world " s most famous steeplechase, taking out the Grand National for Scottish trainer Lucinda Russell and jockey Derek Fox.

Irish billionaire JP McManus - who provided riding legend AP McCoy his one and only success in 2010 with Don't Push It - has several live chances including Regal Encore ridden by Cheltenham Gold Cup winning jockey Robbie Power, victorious 10 years ago on Silver Birch.

The reason I had felt confident when I tipped him to Daily Mail readers on Saturday was that, like the race, his training programme could not have gone better.

"That was fantastic, I'm tearful but it is awesome", said Russell. He jumped all the way down the back. I can't believe it.

The victor is owned by childhood friends Belinda McClung and Deborah Thomson - who chose the name "Two Golf Widows" for their ownership partnership in a dig at their husbands when they teamed up to buy him. For a brief moment, I took a small pull on him. A sign of a true race horse to win the Grand National.

Pearl Jam's first album Ten came out in late 1991, and they were the crowd favourites at the Barclays Center in NY . Before his band closed out the night, Vedder also seized the opportunity to make a political statement of his own.

The eight-year-old horse is trained by the partner of Peter Scudamore, a former eight-time champion jockey who never won the grueling race in 12 attempts in the saddle.

She said: "It's a good thing he's got that big white face as I could still see him at the back (of the field)".

"The day has really been about the sheer volume of business and interest, obviously driven by the fact it is trained locally in Milnathort by Lucinda Russell and given that Derek Fox rode with the Saltire on his silks".

"He's fantastic and he got a great ride".

Torrid's fitness needs to be taken on trust, but Mick Easterby is already off the mark for the new turf campaign and the six-year-old looked very unfortunate not to get his head in front on his final start of the 2016 season at Nottingham.
