Lucinda Russell, the trainer of One For Arthur, should also continue her good form in the card's hunter chase, where Hey Listen (4.40), a lightly-raced point-to-point victor, is now 4-1.
There's been an outpouring of support and congratulations for the Sligo-born jockey Derek Fox, who has ridden One For Arthur to victory at the Grand National at Aintree this evening.
The victor, trained by Lucinda Russell, took it up at the last and came home clear of Cause of Causes to emulate Rubstic's win in 1979.
Sky Full Of Stars (4.10) should regain the winning thread on the same card, having unseated his jockey at an early stage two days ago behind Chain Of Beacons, who re-opposes today under a penalty, while Torrid (4.20) could go well at a decent price in the one-mile handicap at Redcar.
"This is the best feeling I have ever had, or ever will have", Fox said. Arthur just cruised that race, Derek rode so well and I'm just a bit lost for words really.
The Perth-based horse pipped Cause of Causes and Saint Are to the post as jockey Derek Fox celebrated a famous win. Back then, One For Arthur was not even his ride. The work I was seeing on the gallops suggested he had improved significantly since he won at Warwick in January.
LIVERPOOL, England (AP) Belinda McClung and Deborah Thomson bought One For Arthur in 2013 because they wanted an activity to enjoy while their partners were out playing golf.
For winning jockey Fox, the win was all the more remarkable given he was injured on the 9 March and has battled from a broken wrist and collarbone to be able to ride.
I was not particularly anxious and I was hoping that, in a positive way, Arthur's experience would make him respect the Aintree fences more.
The 8-1 favourite Blaklion, who led for much of the contest, was fourth.

I don't think the changes made to the race in the last five years have noticeably weakened its public perception among non-racing fans, or the love felt for the race by those within the sport.
He's only 24. He didn't get flustered - he's got a great attitude.
