1971

The winner

Specify never won another race although he ran well in 1972 and looked to be travelling like the winner on the run down to Bechers on the second circuit.  He faded in the mud to eventually finish sixth. He ran in the one-off  William Hill Grand National Trial at the Autumn meeting of 1972 where he never was travelling well and fell at the fence after Valentines. He never raced again.  

Leading Fancies

The first three home from 1970 returned to the fray. GAY TRIP reunited with Terry Biddlecombe now in the saddle having missed victory twelve months earlier. He was without a win in five starts but had again been campaigned in the highest class finishing fifth in the Hennessy Gold Cup. VULTURE had managed one win in Ireland and MISS HUNTER was running consistently well without managing to get her nose in front. Another class horse in the field was the Jim Joel owned THE LAIRD, runner up in the 1968 Gold Cup. This year he had struck up a sequence of three wins in the run-up to Aintree including the Whitbread Trial at Ascot and the Cathcart Chase at the Festival. Other prolific winners that season included the Irish trained BLACK SECRET who had won six out of eight races including the valuable Troytown Chase at Navan and BEAU BOB, who had won three of his last four starts two of them at Lingfield. CHARTER FLIGHT had won an incident packed Topham Trophy in 1970 but had been lightly campaigned this term with just two races, a novice hurdle and a two horse contest at Kempton (where he had been beaten !) Other fancied runners were the Kerry National winner MONEY BOAT from Ireland, National Hunt Handcap Chase winner LORD JIM and last seasons favourite TWO SPRINGS who, after his early exit in 1970 had finished second in a Scottish National and then won the Midlands equivalent. This term he had beaten The Laird in the Great Yorkshire Chase. It was a good line up.

The winner

 

Whilst he stayed in training until the end of the 1974-75 season and raced in both a Scottish and Midlands National a return trip to Aintree was firmly off the agenda. In January 1973 he won the race named in his honour at Towcester and he also won his final start at Devon & Exeter in March 1975.  He died in 1985​

Leading Fancies

Although the first three from the previous years thrilling encounter all lined up again it looked as if the exertions of that race has taken its toll as neither SPECIFY, BLACK SECRET nor ASTBURY had managed to win a race between them this season. SPECIFY had been limited to just three races and he was easy to back at generous odds of 22-1. GAY TRIP was back to redeem himself after his unfortunate early exit in 1971 and had this season won his second Mackeson Gold Cup, finished fourth in the Massey Ferguson Gold Cup and finished eighth in the Gold Cup. He disputed second favouritism with CARDINAL ERROR who had won four chases this year including the Fairlawne Chase at Windsor. He was to be partnered by a young John Francome having his first ride in the race. Favourite was the 1970 & 1971 Gold Cup winner L`ESCARGOT who was to be the first Gold Cup winner since Mont Tremblant in 1953 to run in the race. Apart from his dual Gold Cup success he had won in America and had finished sixth in the Hennessy Gold Cup and fourth in both the King George VI Chase and the Gold Cup. Of the other fancies FAIR VULGAN had won the Eider Chase at Newcastle and had not been out of the first two this year, GYLEBURN had recent wins at Teesside Park and Haydock to his credit and CLOUDSMERE victorious in his last three starts at Kempton and Folkestone.

Leading Fancies 

The race seemed to be between two horses making their debut in the National and both would start joint-favourite. The ex-Australian chaser CRISP came to England in 1971 having won everything there was to win down under. Trained by Fred Winter the initial target was the Two Mile Champion Chase at the Festival which he won easily in 1971. Then he turned his attentions to the Gold Cup but disappointed when he could only finish fifth behind Glencarraig Lady in 1972. Next on his "bucket list" was the National. Campaigned over lesser distances he had won the Geoffrey Gilbey Memorial Chase at Newbury and finished third in the Two Mile Champion Chase. Jumping would be no problem, but would he last home ? RED RUM was owned by octogenarian millionaire businessman Noel Le Mare and trained just up the road from Aintree by an unfashionable trainer called Donald "Ginger" McCain who had his stables behind a used car showroom. He had winning form at Aintree albeit on the flat as he had dead heated for first place in a seller on his racecourse debut on the eve of the 1967 National. He had changed hands several times since then and had even spent a short spell running in the colours of 1950 National winner Freebooter.  With McCain he had won his first five starts. He had finished second behind rival HIGHLAND SEAL in the Haydock Park Grand National Trial and fourth in the Greenall Whitley Breweries Chase at the same track. The two were offered at 9-1 but CRISP was giving his rival thirteen pounds. Running in Mr Le Mares first colours was GLENKILN who had won the first (and sadly only) running of the William Hill Grand National Trial in a one-off revival of the old Autumn meeting the previous October. There he had made most of the running and had won as he liked with several of his National rivals behind him. Another with winning form at Aintree was SUNNY LAD who had won the 1972 Topham. None of the previous three National winners were in the field but L`ESCARGOT, so unlucky when knocked out early in 1972 was third favourite having run his usual good race in the Gold Cup. The popular grey GREY SOMBRERO had had an excellent 1971-72 season winning the Midlands Grand National and Whitbread Gold Cup but he had not been seen out since November. Another to note was SPANISH STEPS who had won the 1969 Hennessy. He had beaten Gold Cup winner The Dikler in the Fairlawne Chase at Windsor and had also triumphed at Newbury at the start of the season.
