"We send horses to lots of trainers, and those that train winners get more horses, those that don't get less, and Gordon is setting different standards".

Coming in fifth place on Milansbar, Bryony Frost had an excellent showing in her first-ever ride at the Grand National.

The horse fell halfway through the race and a green tent was erected around it in front of anxious spectators.
