Grand National Race Report 2009

Trainer Venetia Williams became only the second woman, after Jenny Pitman, to land the Grand National when her MON MOME scored at betting odds of 100-1.


Mon Mome ran away from his field to land the Grand National by twelve lengths under his jockey Liam Treadwell, having his first ride in the race. Fearless rider Liam Treadwell showed the more experienced jockeys how to ride Aintree by hugging the inside all the way around.


Mon Mome was the the biggest-odds winner since 1967 when Foinavon won his famous Grand National after carnage at one fence.


Runner up was the 2008 Grand National winner, Comply Or Die, who ran a huge race off a 15lb higher mark than the previous year. Comply Or Die was given a safety-first ride by Timmy Murphy who kept on the wide outside from the start.


Butler's Cabin, ridden by Champion jockey Tony McCoy started as Grand National favourite at 7/1 but came a distant seventh.


The Grand National nearly started in chaos after two false starts, typical of the amateur way the race has been started in the past.

1. Mon Mome 100-1:  Ridden up the inner and strongly ran clear from the last fence.


2. Comply or Die 14-1: Jockey Timmy Murphy gave the outside to nobody. Looked big danger at the last fence. His outside route may have been safe but he forfeited a ton of ground to the winner as a result.

3. My Will 8-1: Bad mistake at Canal Turn on second circuit. Ran on at one pace.

4. State of Play 14-1: Just behind the leaders most of the way, given a positive ride but made too many costly mistakes.

5. Cerium 100-1: Always outpaced but ran a brave race after suffering a fractured skull on the first circuit. may have finished closer otherwise.

6. Big Fella Thanks 14-1: Running a big race before fading late on.

7. Butler's Cabin 7-1 fav: Always mid pack and never threatened leader. Champion jokcye Tony McCoy, yet to ride a winner of The Grand National, had no hard-luck stories this time.

9. Snowy Morning 33-1: Terrible error at water jump did not help his chance.

11. Irish Invader 16-1: Mistake at Canal Turn last time, weakened late on.

12. Idle Talk 66-1: Up with the pace for most of the way but ran out of gas and appeared not to stay the four and a half mile trip.

13. Darkness 16-1: never threatened to get involved and many mistakes did not help. owner by Andrew Lloyd-Webber, Darkness proved a little out of tune.

14. Priests Leap 100-1: Went wide and struggled for pace late on.

15. Offshore Account 20-1: Heading the field after the unseat of Black Apalachi at Becher's second time around. he soon ran out of puff and faded badly.
