Leighton Aspell comes to grief while leading on Ballycassidy
Out of a total of 40 horses that started the 2006 John Smith's Grand National, only nine of them finished - the fewest since 2001.

Jockey Niall 'Slippers' Madden and trainer Martin Brassil were celebrating when Numbersixvalverde came home at 11-1, ahead of last year's winner Hedgehunter, ridden by Ruby Walsh.

Nina Carberry, in her first Grand National, guided Forest Gunner to ninth place.

Winner Numbersixvalverde was napped by our man Honest Frank in the BBC Sport pinstickers' guide.

He had also successfully tipped War of Attrition (15-2) for last month's Cheltenham Gold Cup.

And our fun guide also came up trumps with Numbersixvalverde.
