Aintree Grand National 2005 result

Ruby Walsh was the punters pal again as he gave the favourite Hedgehunter a masterful ride to make amends for last year's last-fence fall. He hunted up the leaders just off the pace throughout before taking it up with three to jump, and from then on was always in command. Carrie Ford, bidding to become the first woman to win the Grand National in its 166-year history, finished a gallant fifth on Forest Gunner.

Carrie Ford
What the Jockeys said
"It was brilliant to get round, and it was only at the last that we found out that he didn't stay, but guts and determination saw him through to the end." - Carrie Ford. "He gave Valentines first time a fair old clout, but after that he was going super all the way. I thought to myself that whatever happens I wouldn't move until the elbow. When we got there, away he went - brilliant." - Ruby Walsh.
