The 11 year old, trained by Sue Smith - the wife of former showjumper Harvey at their stables high on the Yorkshire moors above Bingley - was well placed throughout, and jumped well clear at the last to win comfortably by nine lengths at 66-1. A notable achievement too for jockey Ryan Mania, riding in his first National.
