What Happened Last Year with Any Second Now in the Grand National?

After the unusual prep of running in the Webster Cup over just 2m at Navan, Any Second Now was sent off a very well-backed 15/2 second-favourite in the Grand National. Unfortunately, he was badly hampered by a faller at the 12th fence where there is a ditch on the landing side.

Any Second Now dropped to the rear as a result of that interference but started making steady headway from the one before Becher’s Brook on the final circuit. By the home turn, he was disputing fourth place and went past Burrows Saint into third at the final fence.

Although Any Second Now stayed on bravely up the famous long run-in, he just had too much ground to make up on Minella Times in the same ownership. He was beaten by just over eight lengths but less than a couple of lengths behind 100/1 Grand National outsider Balko Des Flos.
