Following a false start, the race eventually got underway with a number of horses falling, leaving Across The Bay to lead the early standings.

The Donald McCain-trained horse was taken out after fence 13, however, exiting the race along with favourite Teaforthree, who fell at 'The Chair'.

Shakalakaboomboom, backed by many ahead of the 167th Grand National, pulled up as Rocky Creek and Mr Moonshine jousted for the lead.
