Trainers With Winning Grand National Records

The Grand National has proved to be a race where certain trainers have had continued success.

These trainers know what is required to win the Grand National. This could be their year all over again! We will pay special attention to their runners.

Nigel Twiston-Davies Runners

Nigel Twiston-Davies has won the Grand National twice with Earth Summit and Bindaree and he's also won an additional five times over the Grand National fences over the past twenty years. Twiston-Davies' runners always warrant the closest inspection and his main contender for the 2022 looks to be Good Boy Bobby who is a dual winner over fences this season.

Paul Nicholls Runners

Paul Nicholls has had rather a mixed bag from his runners in the National and finally registered his first win with Neptune Collonges in 2012. He leads the way with 9 winners over the National fences since 2002. Nicholl's main runner for this year's renewal look set to be Highland Hunter.

David Pipe Runners

Martin Pipe's son David is now very much forging his own reputation and he has had multiple entries in the Grand National since taking over from his father. Comply or Die won the race for him in 2008 and also finished runner-up the following year. Surprisingly no other David Pipe horse has managed to place since in the Grand National. Pipe's best hope this year looks to be with Romain De Senam.

Willie Mullins Runners

Willie Mullins won the Grand National in 2005 with Hedgehunter who, but for falling at the last in 2004, could have also been placed on two further occasions. Mullins also guided the consistent Snowy Morning to third place in 2008 and in 2018 Pleasant Company finished runner up to Tiger Roll but it could be argued that this is a disappointing return for such a strong stable. Willie looks to have a strong string heading to the 2022 renewal with former Irish National winner Burrows Saint looking like his best shout along with Goffs Thyestes runner-up Franco De Port.

Gordon Elliott Runners

Gordon Elliott won the Grand National with his first runner, Silver Birch, in 2007 and went close again in 2017 with runner up Cause Of Causes.  Elliott ended an eleven-year wait when Tiger Roll won the Grand National in 2018 and then followed up again the following year. Tiger Roll will not return in 2022, however, Elliott still holds a very strong hand with the likes of the Savills Chase winner Galvin, the Troytown winner Run Wild Fred, the Bobbyjo Chase runner-up Escaria Ten and the Irish Gold Cup winner Conflated to name a few.
