Grand National 2017 Result

1. One For Arthur - 14/1 (BSP 18.1)
2. Cause Of Causes - 16/1
3. Saint Are - 25/1
4. Blaklion - 8/1F

One For Arthur has won the 2017 Grand National, becoming the first Scottish-trained winner of the race since Rubstic in 1979.

Trained by Lucinda Russel, whose partner is former champion jockey Peter Scudamore, and ridden brilliantly by Grand National debutant Derek Fox, One For Arthur crept into the race rounding the home turn, and jumped to the front at the last before powering to victory over the Gordon Elliott-trained Cause Of Causes.

In Betfair's Grand National ante-post market One For Arthur was matched at a high of [160.0], though on the day he was generally solid in the market at around the [18.0] mark, eventually returning at a Betfair Starting Price of 18.1, as opposed to the industry Starting Price of 14/1.

Although always going well towards the rear of the field One For Arthur was matched at a high of [38.0] in-running on the Betfair Exchange.

Proven stayer Cause Of Causes ran a fantastic race to finish second, while Saint Are, who was placed in the race in 2015, was third and eventual favourite Blaklion, who traded at a low of [1.52] in-running when holding a clear lead with two to jump, finished fourth.
