Scottish National winner

The horse Merigo has won the Scottish Grand National. The 11 year old is trained in Ecclefechan by Andrew Parker.

He started the race second favourite and jockey Timmy Murphy said afterwards that the horse was a superstar and he'd had to dig deep.

The race was held at Ayr, a course which Merigo seems to like a lot. Andrew Parker has said that Merigo seems to be a different horse on this course.

It's the second time in three years the horse has won this race.
