Off to the races! A group of smartly dressed friends were suited and booted and ready for action

Off to the races! A group of smartly dressed friends were suited and booted and ready for action

The owner of The Leinster Express came within millimetres of winning this year's Grand National but his horse was pipped at the post in one of the most dramatic finishes to the most famous horse races in the world. "I can't believe it, to be honest".

"She was a marvelous woman, getting up at 6am to drive me around Ireland for races". That's racing and I'm very lucky that I won it two years ago. All the way up the run-in I thought he wasn't going to get there and then right on the line I thought we had a shout.

The Slad-based handler said: "He had a good, comfortable night".

Patrick Mullins reflected on Pleasant Company's "extraordinary" late charge following his narrow defeat in the Randox Health Grand National at Aintree on Saturday.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo after her win, Robyn said: "I went for the tiara as I thought that suited the dress the most".

"Winning confined maidens around Inch or Dromahane or Tallow used to satisfy me and now I've won this, it's fantastic, I've had a brilliant career, great people around me and I hope everyone that has supported me along the way can enjoy this as much as I will".

"There was no real lightbulb moment that we realised Gordon was going to turn himself into what he has done, when he won the National first time I was like 'who is he?'". "In a war of attrition like that, all you want is another stride".

"To win three different races at the Cheltenham Festival and then go on and win an English National, it's just unbelievable". He just couldn't do the weight on him.

Coming in fifth place on Milansbar, Bryony Frost had an excellent showing in her first-ever ride at the Grand National.

There were a total of 12 completions from 38 starters and all horses and jockeys returned.

Following an exclusive long term partnership with Carm Productions and The Jockey Club, Inspired's Virtual Grand National 2018 was broadcast for the first time on national television in the United Kingdom on Friday evening ahead of the live event on Saturday afternoon.
