After his victory at the Grand National Ryan Mania said: "There's no words to describe it, I got a dream ride all the way - I couldn't believe my luck. I couldn't fault the old horse.
"He was second in the Scottish National last year and I thought I should stay loyal to him and thank God I did. I never really had an anxious moment, he made a couple of mistakes, that's all."
Ryan Mania added: "I knew he was capable, even though he hadn't been running well. This is always his time of year, but you couldn't be confident. Two years ago I gave up for six months because the rides had dried up, but Sue and Harvey took me in.
"I realise this will change my life, but I can't go too mad tonight because I am at Hexham tomorrow."
