Maximus Triumphs in 2024 Grand National at Aintree

The 7-1 shot ridden by Irish champion trainer’s stable jockey Paul Townend proved to be too good for Delta Work and Minella Indo in the Grand National. Last year’s winner, Corach Rambler, unseated Derek Fox at the first fence, causing early drama. Townend, achieving his first National win, expressed his disbelief at the race and the horse’s performance.

He described some challenges during the race and the horse’s impressive response. The result of the Grand National affected the British trainers’ championship, bringing Mullins into contention after securing the biggest prize in the calendar. Delta Work finished second at 28-1, with Minella Indo finishing third at the same odds.

Galvin defied 40-1 odds to finish fourth, one place ahead of Kitty’s Light at 12-1. Mullins and Townend’s success continued into the spring season, with victories in five Grade 1 races at the Cheltenham Festival. Townend emphasized the significance of the Grand National and praised Paul for his excellent performance.

Twenty-one horses finished the race, with seven pulled up and four unseated. There were no fallers among the 32-strong field, which was reduced by two after some horses were declared non-runners earlier on Saturday. Additionally, a subscription fee and cancellation information were provided at the end of the text.
