Here, you will find all the Grand National day 1 results from Aintree. The opening day of the three-day Festival had plenty of action including four Grade 1 races. See where any horses you backed finished at the track on the edge of Liverpool.
The first of Grand National day 1 results saw Protektorat pull off a surprise win in the Manifesto Novices' Chase as the first leg of a treble for a syndicate of owners including Sir Alex Ferguson. Monmiral justified favouritism in the Anniversary 4-Y-O Hurdle, defeating Triumph Hurdle second Adagio.
A third win for the owners saw cheekpiece bring Clan Des Obeaux back to his best in the Betway Bowl. He routed his rivals, who included Native River and two-time Grand National winner Tiger Roll. The latter finished out of the frame in fourth, perhaps proving Gigginstown House Stud right about his lofty rating.
The Aintree Hurdle saw Abacadabras bounce back from falling at Cheltenham with success on his first try over the trip. Two outsiders filled the places ahead of veteran Buveur D'Air in the feature hurdles contest of this meeting. Jason The Militant, a well-supported favourite, unseated Rachael Blackmore.
Cousin Pascal pulled off the biggest surprise among Grand National day 1 results with victory in the Open Hunters' Chase. This race carried the name of former Aintree chief Rose Patterson, who is sadly no longer with us. Amateur jockeys taking to the Grand National fences was a welcome sight.
In the Red Rum Handicap Chase, Editeur Du Gite made most of the running for a game success. Finally, the Nickel Coin Mares' Bumper went to Ireland. Me Too Please under Blackmore prevailed over Cheltenham Champion Bumper third Elle Est Belle. Hot favourite Eileendover finished out the frame with Miss Lamb reversing form with her.
