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.
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 Pleasant Company to finish runner-up to Tiger Roll and Burrows Saint finished 4th in 2021 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 2023 with Cheltenham Festival winner Gaillard Du Mesnil and the strong stayer Mr Incredible
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. The Elliott battalions look likely to be out in force again in 2023 with last year's third-placed horse, Delta Work, aimed at the race again and former Grade One winner, Galvin, also likely to line up this time.
Henry De Bromhead Runners
De Bromhead won the Grand National two years ago with Minella Times who has now been retired. In 2023, Henry's best chance looks to be the recent winner Ain't That A Shame who was placed in a big Leopardstown handicap over Xmas.
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. Just the one entry for Twiston-Davies in 2023: Fantastikas.
Lucinda Russell Runners
The Scottish trainer won the Grand National in 2017 with One For Arthur and has another very strong chance this year with double Cheltenham Festival winner, Corach Rambler
