It has the ability to consistently produce thrilling finishes and heart-warming stories. We are advocates of learning lessons from the past when trying to find the winners of the future.
Experience counts in the Grand National and 20 of the last 26 winners were aged either 9, 10 or It is said that Becher later reflected: "Water tastes disgusting without the benefits of whisky.
Before the First World War it was not uncommon for loose horses to continue straight ahead after the jump and end up in the Leeds and Liverpool Canal itself.
It was bypassed for the first time in on the final lap as vets arrived to treat a horse who fell on the first lap. A grandstand was erected alongside the fence in the early part of the 20th century but fell into decline after the Second World War and was torn down in the s.
The runners then cross the Melling Road near to the Anchor Bridge, a popular vantage point since the earliest days of the race. This also marks the point where the runners are said to be re-entering the "racecourse proper".
In the early days of the race, it is thought there was an obstacle near this point known as the Table Jump, which may have resembled a bank similar to those still seen at Punchestown in Ireland.
In the s the Melling Road was also flanked by hedges and the runners had to jump into the road and then back out of it.
Despite some tired runners falling on the 30th and appearing injured, no horse deaths have occurred at the 30th fence to date. On the first lap of the race, runners continue around the course to negotiate two fences which are only jumped once:.
The fence was the location where a distance judge sat in the earliest days of the race. On the second circuit, he would record the finishing order from his position and declare any horse that had not passed him before the previous runner passed the finishing post as "distanced", meaning a non-finisher.
The practice was done away with in the s, but the monument where the chair stood is still there. The ground on the landing side is six inches higher than on the takeoff side, creating the opposite effect to the drop at Becher's.
The fence was originally known as the Monument Jump, but "The Chair" came into more frequent use in the s. Today it is one of the most popular jumps on the course for spectators.
The Water Jump was one of the most popular jumps on the course, presenting a great jumping spectacle for those in the stands and was always a major feature in the newsreels ' coverage of the race.
As the newsreels made way for television in the s, so, in turn, did the Water Jump fall under the shadow of its neighbour, The Chair, in popularity as an obstacle.
On the final lap, after the 30th fence, the remaining runners bear right, avoiding The Chair and Water Jump, to head onto a "run-in" to the finishing post.
The run-in is not perfectly straight: an "elbow" requires jockeys to make a slight right before finding themselves truly on the home straight.
When the concept of the Grand National was first envisaged it was designed as a race for gentlemen riders,  meaning men who were not paid to compete, and while this was written into the conditions of the early races many of the riders who weighed out for the race were professionals for hire.
Throughout the Victorian era the line between the amateur and professional sportsman existed only in terms of the rider's status, and the engagement of an amateur to ride in the race was rarely considered a handicap to a contender's chances of winning.
Many gentleman riders won the race before the First World War. Although the number of amateurs remained high between the wars their ability to match their professional counterparts gradually receded.
After the Second World War, it became rare for any more than four or five amateurs to take part in any given year. The last amateur rider to win the race is Marcus Armytage , who set the still-standing course record of Frisk in By the 21st century, however, openings for amateur riders had become very rare with some years passing with no amateur riders at all taking part.
Those that do in the modern era are most usually talented young riders who are often close to turning professional.
In the past, such amateur riders would have been joined by army officers, such as David Campbell who won in , and sporting aristocrats, farmers or local huntsmen and point to point riders, who usually opted to ride their own mounts.
But all these genres of rider have faded out in the last quarter of a century with no riders of military rank or aristocratic title having taken a mount since The Sex Discrimination Act made it possible for female jockeys to enter the race.
The 21st century has not seen a significant increase in female riders but it has seen them gain rides on mounts considered to have a genuine chance of winning.
In , Nina Carberry became the first female jockey to take a fifth ride in the Grand National, her best placing being seventh in Professionals now hold dominance in the Grand National and better training, dietary habits and protective clothing have ensured that riders' careers last much longer and offer more opportunities to ride in the race.
Of the 34 riders who have enjoyed 13 or more rides in the race, 19 had their first ride in the 20th century and 11 had careers that continued into or started in the 21st century.
Longevity is no guarantee of success, however, as 13 of the 34 never tasted the glory of winning the race. McCoy is the only rider to successfully remove himself from the list after winning at the 15th attempt in Richard Johnson set a record of 21 failed attempts to win the race from —, having finished second twice, but is still competing.
The other 13 riders who never won or have not as yet won, having had more than 12 rides in the race are:. Peter Scudamore technically lined up for thirteen Grand Nationals without winning but the last of those was the void race of , which meant that he officially competed in twelve Nationals.
Many other well-known jockeys have failed to win the Grand National. Dick Francis also never won the Grand National in 8 attempts although he did lead over the last fence on Devon Loch in the race, only for the horse to collapse under him when well in front only 40 yards from the winning post.
Pitman's son Mark also led over the last fence, only to be pipped at the post when riding Garrison Savannah in David Dick luckily won the Grand National on E.
Since , any jockey making five or more clear rounds has been awarded the Aintree Clear Rounds Award. Over the years, Aintree officials have worked in conjunction with animal welfare organisations to reduce the severity of some fences and to improve veterinary facilities.
In , a new veterinary surgery was constructed in the stable yard which has two large treatment boxes, an X-ray unit, video endoscopy, equine solarium, and sandpit facilities.
Further changes in set-up and procedure allow vets to treat horses more rapidly and in better surroundings.
Those requiring more specialist care can be transported by specialist horse ambulances, under police escort, to the nearby Philip Leverhulme Equine Hospital at the University of Liverpool at Leahurst.
A mobile on-course X-ray machine assists in the prompt diagnosis of leg injuries when horses are pulled up, and oxygen and water are available by the final fence and finishing post.
Additional vets are stationed at the pull-up area, finishing post, and in the surgery. Some of the National's most challenging fences have also been modified, while still preserving them as formidable obstacles.
After the Grand National , in which two horses died in incidents at Becher's Brook , Aintree began the most significant of its modifications to the course.
Other fences have also been reduced in height over the years, and the entry requirements for the race have been made stricter.
Screening at the Canal Turn now prevents horses from being able to see the sharp left turn and encourages jockeys to spread out along the fence, rather than take the tight left-side route.
These orange-coloured boards are positioned at the base of each fence and provide a clear ground line to assist horses in determining the base of the fence.
Parts of the course were widened in to allow runners to bypass fences if required. This was utilised for the first time during the race as casualties at fences 4 and 6 Becher's Brook resulted in marshals diverting the remaining contenders around those fences on the final lap.
Welfare groups have suggested a reduction in the size of the field currently limited to a maximum of 40 horses should be implemented.
Opponents point to previous unhappy experience with smaller fields such as only 29 runners at the Grand National , only 31 runners in , and a fatality each at the and Nationals despite smaller fields and the possible ramifications concerning the speed of such races in addition to recent course modifications part of the "speed kills" argument.
Some within the horseracing community, including those with notable achievements in the Grand National such as Ginger McCain and Bob Champion ,    have argued that the lowering of fences and the narrowing of ditches, primarily designed to increase horse safety, has had the adverse effect by encouraging the runners to race faster.
During the s and s, the Grand National saw a total of 12 horses die half of which were at Becher's Brook ; in the next year period from to , when modifications to the course were most significant, there were 17 equine fatalities.
The and races each yielded two deaths, including one each at Becher's Brook. In , when further changes were made to introduce a more flexible fence structure, there were no fatalities in the race itself although two horses died in run-up races over the same course.
In , the race sponsors John Smith's launched a poll to determine five personalities to be inducted into the inaugural Grand National Legends initiative.
