Grand National winner, One for Arthur, and his co-owner, Belinda McClung, will make a special appearance at Kelso Racecourse today, following their success at Aintree.

The odds on the horse - ridden by Derek Fox and trained by Lucinda Russell - winning had been 14-1, making him a popular choice for punters.

Belinda McClung, who's from Ancrum near Jedburgh and is a steward at Kelso racecourse, bought the horse with her schoolfriend Deborah Thompson to keep busy while their husbands play golf.

They registered their ownership as 'Two Golf Widows' and after an investment of £60,000 - they are now £600,000 richer.

After returning home to trainer Lucinda Russell's yard in Kinross yesterday, One for Arthur and Belinda will be at Kelso's Buccleuch Cup family day today.
