Scottish Grand National 2024: Results, Runners & Prize Money

With the English Grand National safely in the bag, the all-conquering Willie Mullins headed to Ayr with the British Trainers’ Championship firmly in his sights. Mr Incredible headed up the Mullins sextet, having only made it as far as halfway at Aintree the previous week, with the well-handicapped Spanish Harlem and unexposed Macdermott also looking to boast solid claims.

Lucinda Russell’s runaway Edinburgh National winner Inis Oirr flew the flag for the home team, whilst the best-supported English runners were Jamie Snowden’s Git Maker, who arrived on the back of an excellent second in the Kim Muir Challenge Cup at the Cheltenham Festival, and Mr Vango who finished third in the National Hunt Chase, and was propelled into outright favouritism by a flood of late money.

Seemingly intent on making this a thorough test, the well-supported Mr Vango moved straight into the lead under Ben Jones, tracked through by Whistleinthedark. The enigmatic Mr Incredible quickly produced another infamous display – losing lengths at the start before pulling himself up completely before the first fence. Stablemate We’llhavewan departed at the first, in what was a less than ideal start for the Mullins squadron.

Mr Vango continued to lead throughout the first circuit, Whistleinthedark helping to push the pace, Classic Chase winner My Silver Lining obtaining a nice position against the inside rail, and the relatively inexperienced Macdermott kept of trouble by Danny Mullins on the outside.

Moving into the back straight second time around, Mr Vango continued to make the running. Amongst those creeping into contention from further back were Git Maker, Spanish Harlem, and Surrey Quest. Midlands Grand National winner Beauport, Elvis Mail, and topweight Stay Away Fay sending out early alarm signals, and Inis Oirr departing at the fourteenth.

No let up in the pace as they approached the final five fences, with a dozen in contention as they turned for home. Mr Vango cracked on the final bend as Whistleinthedark and Ballygrifincottage swept around his outside. However, two runners coming from a little further back would fight out the finish.

Macdermott hit the front over the third last and looked set to forge clear. Surrey Quest had other ideas, storming home up the far rail to engage in a hammer and tongs battle with Macdermott up the run-in but Macdermott was on top by a nose at the line. Git Maker stayed on well for third, with Klarc Kent, Ontheropes, and Spanish Harlem seeing Mullins saddle four of the first six home.

It was a first Irish-trained winner of the Scottish Grand National in 155 years, and a huge result for Willie Mullins, who looked to have one hand on the British Trainers’ Championship thanks to the £131,1200 collected by his runners.
