Earth Summit and Suny Bay turn for home

Cornelius Lysaght talks to jockeys and trainers (5'58")
This was the slowest Grand National in history. Earth Summit crossed the line in 10 minutes and 51 seconds. The heavy rain in the Liverpool area clearly took its toll on the horses. There were 37 starters - Avro Anson was withdrawn on Friday night - but only six made it home. So how did your choice do?

  1. Earth Summit 7-1f
  2. Suny Bay 11-1
  3. Samlee 8-1
  4. St Mellion Fairway 20-1
  5. Gimme Five
  6. Killeshin
