Amberleigh HouseAmberleigh House recorded a famous victory in the £600,000 Martell Cognac Grand National at Aintree.

Trained by Ginger McCain, the man responsible for Red Rum in the 1970s, Amberleigh House grimly stayed on up the run-in to catch Clan Royal.

Lord Atterbury was third, with last year's hero Monty's Pass in fourth.
Third last year, Amberleigh House (16-1) was given a perfect ride by Graham Lee as he come home in one of the most exciting finishes imaginable.

Hedgehunter led the field almost from the start but crashed out at the last fence as Clan Royal jumped it in front with Lord Atterbury.
Clan Royal was getting very tired, though, and was virtually legless approaching the elbow.

He tried valiantly for Liam Cooper, but Amberleigh House would not be denied.

1 Amberleigh House
2 Clan Royal - 3 lengths behind
3 Lord Atterbury - 2l
4 Monty's Pass - 29l

6 Smarty - 3żl
