1 Ballabriggs 14/1 2 Oscar Time 14/1 3 Don't Push It 9/1 4 State Of Play 28/1

Ballabriggs won the 2011Grand National in fine style and in doing so became the first ex-Cheltenham Festival winner to prevail since Rough Quest in 1995. Jumping soundly apart from one mistake at Valentines on the second circuit, Ballabriggs had been prominent from a very early stage, even taking the lead briefly at the third fence. The mid part of the race saw the likes of Santa’s Son and Majestic Concorde at the head of affairs but neither could maintain their challenge and Ballabriggs took up the running approaching The Chair and stayed in front for the majority of the remainder of the race. Niche Market, Oscar Time , Don’t Push It and Big Fella Thanks all looked poised to overwhelm the Trevor Hemmings owned gelding as the field turned for home but one by one Ballabriggs saw them all off for a convincing victory. Nineteen of the forty runners successfully completed the course.


1 Dont Push It 10/1JF 2 Black Apalachi 14/1 3 State Of Play 16/1 4 Big Fella Thanks 10JF

Don't Push It provided Tony McCoy with the final big race victory missing from a glittering career. After fourteen unsuccesful attempts McCoy finally found the right answer to the Grand National puzzle and his joy and relief were plain to see. Black Apalachi gave the Champ and Don't Push it most to think about when leading for most of the race but a mistake at the third last did not help his cause. State Of Play ran on to finish third and Big Fella Thanks ran out of steam on the run-in after looking a likely challenger but held on for fourth place. Fourteen of the forty runners successfully completed the course.


1 Mon Mome 100/1 2 Comply Or Die 14/1 3 My Will 8/1 4 State Of Play 14/1

Mon Mome provided a huge shock winning at a massive price of 100/1 and in doing so repelled the determined challenge of 2008 winner Comply Or Die. The other placed horses, My Will and State Of Play, both looked to have strong chances of winning with three fences to jump but had no answer to the winners stamina on the long run after the last fence. Seventeen of the forty runners successfully completed the course.


1 Comply Or Die 7/1JF 2 King Johns Castle 20/1 3 Snowy Morning 16/1 4 Slim Pickings 10/1

Comply Or Die was a convincing winner of the 2008 National, travelling well throughout the whole race and showing plenty of stamina to see off King Johns Castle by a comfortable four lengths. The Irish representatives were in good form yet again with the raiders filling second, third and fourth places. Fifteen of the forty horses that set out successfully completed the course.


1 Silver Birch 33/1 2 Mckelvey 12/1 3 Slim Pickings 33/1 4 Philson Run 100/1

The 2007 National provided a thrilling contest with only 2 lengths seperating the first three horses home. Winning trainer Gordon Elliott maintained Ireland's great run in the race as the raiders have now won four of the last five Nationals. Mckelvey was the gallant runner up, who, depsite picking up an injury on the run in, very nearly pulled of an inspired gamble. Twelve of the forty horses that set out successfully completed the course.
