Arthur ends Scotland's 38-year Grand National wait

Vieux Lion Rouge has outstanding claims to lifting racing’s greatest prize on Saturday

Randox Health Grand National hero One For Arthur's tour of Scotland will continue at Musselburgh on Saturday when his devoted groom, Jaimie Duff, will receive the trophy she was unable to collect in the aftermath of the eight-year-old's Aintree triumph.

The Lucinda Russell-trained, Derek Fox-mounted horse overtook the heavily-backed 8/1 favourite Blaklion in a dramatic finish that left Cause of Causes (16/1) second and Davy Russell's Saint Are (25/1) in third.

Fox discussed riding tactics with former serial champion jockey Peter Scudamore before the race. It's been an absolutely fantastic day. Trainer Lucinda Russell has become just the fourth woman to win the Grand National, after Jenny Pitman, Venetia Williams and Sue Smith, and a delighted Russell admitted it was "out of this world" to have a horse like him.

"We had expected this year's Grand National to be a bit of a money-spinner for us", he said.

Inifiniti QX80 Monograph revealed
Improved aerodynamics comes courtesy of an underbody cover which also acts as added protection from the rough terrain. Never a wallflower, the Infiniti QX80 is as flashy on the outside as it is powerful on the inside.

"He's never been a horse that's been able to run too many times, so I think the ideal thing for him now is a few supermarket openings and then a nice field of grass!"

"I think he showed a lot of class on the day as we were anxious enough whether he'd have enough pace on the drying ground".

"He seems to have matured an very bad lot this year and I certainly wouldn't be swapping him for anything at this stage", said 34-year-old Tom Scudamore.

A PaddyPower spokesman said 15 per cent of the betting public across the United Kingdom went for One For Arthur with 10 per cent of that coming from their Scottish outlets.

Sharma pointed out that 24-hour power supply had been ensured during "Navratra" to all the "shaktipeeths" (religious places). In a bid to end woes of potato growers, the cabinet chose to purchase 1 lakh metric tonnes of potato at Rs 487 per quintal.

Fox himself almost missed the ride, only returning to action after a broken wrist earlier in the week, and the mount on One For Arthur was just his fifth since his return.

"We won't know exactly how much we will be paying out until everyone has brought their slips in and we have paid out their money, but it looks like we have just about broken even - although we have lost significantly in Scotland".

"It's the best feeling I've ever had", he said. I had a quiet moment with him before the race.

"There's a nice connection there with Rubstic and I'm very proud for Scotland, but most of all, I'm proud for everyone here".

Three dead, one injured after California elementary school shooting
Anderson and Smith were found dead in a special needs classroom that serves the first through fourth grades, Burguan said. It began when Anderson signed in as a visitor to the school, saying he was dropping off something for his wife.

"He's working better than I've ever seen him, working with a bit of class". He's only 24. He didn't get flustered - he's got a great attitude.
