Three Iconic Grand National Victories In The Last 10 Years

2012 - Neptune Collonges

One of the greatest finishes to a Grand National not just in the last 10 years but in the history of the race came in the 2012 when the John Hales owned Neptune Collonges somehow managed to get up on the line to land the last running of the National on BBC.

The grey retired after that 40 runner event but before that had raced against the best chasers in the sport like Denman and Kauto Star.

That is what put him in good stead for his first try at the marathon trip and normally when horses are tiring in the final stages he rallied up the run in and snatched the race from Sunnyhillboy.

2010 - Dont Push It

Just on the cusp of the 10 year period saw Don't Push It for Jonjo O'Neill land the 2010 Grand National to give the trainer a winner in the prestigious race as a jockey and handler.

Anther Iconic reason as to why we have added this into the three races is because the JP McManus owned gelding gave the all time champion jockey A P McCoy his first win in the event.

At his 15th attempt McCoy landed his first and only Grand National winner of his career arguably giving Don't Push It one of the best rides seen in this event.

2018 - Tiger Roll

The final race from the last decade that deserves recognition for the actual event and who the winner was is 2018's renewal that saw Tiger Roll land his first Grand National.

The Gordon Elliott trained gelding is a fan favourite in national hunt racing having landed five events at the Cheltenham festival and back to back Grand Nationals.

However, his first win in this race is truly what elevated him to the next level as a racehorse, having jumped beautifully all the way round but in the final stages started to tire.

Pleasant Company for Willie Mullins was closing with every stride but the pocket rocket managed to hold in a photo finish.
