All Grand National day 3 results from the Aintree Festival
After Grand National day 3 results from Aintree? This is the day when the world’s most famous steeplechase takes place. Besides the Grand National itself, there were three Grade 1 races. Did you back these winners?
Opening Grand National day was the EFT Systems Handicap Hurdle, where Hometown Boy started a trend of favourites winning at Aintree. The Mersey Novices’ Hurdle which followed saw My Drogo confirm all his promise and take the spoils in style on his first attempt at Grade 1 level.
Shishkin winning was one of the expected Grand National day 3 results, and he didn’t disappoint in the Maghull Novices’ Chase, completing an unbeaten season. In the chief supporting race, the Ryanair Stayers Hurdle, Thyme Hill prevailed over gutsy mare Roksana by a neck as Paisley Park pulled up.
It was five favourites from as many races when Happygolucky took the Betway Handicap Chase on the Mildmay course. In the Grand National itself, Rachael Blackmore continued her history-making season by becoming the first female jockey to ride the winner of the world’s most famous steeplechase on Minella Times.
This major success was part of a 1-2 for Irish trainer Henry De Bromhead. The Emerald Isle provided each of the first five and 10 of the first 11 home. Only three of the 15 finishers here were trained in Britain. Cloth Cap, the favourite pulled up on the second circuit, as one of 25 horses that didn’t complete the course.
Placed horses among Grand National day 3 results in the big race were Balko Des Flos, Any Second Now, Burrows Saint and Farclas. Blaklion ran best of the British horses as a distant sixth, but the feature belonged to Ireland. The concluding Grade 2 bumper saw Knappers Hill scored his third National Hunt Flat Race.
