Noble Yeats, a 50-1 shot, wins the Grand National on amateur jockey Sam Waley-Cohen’s final ride

Noble Yeats, trained by Emmet Mullins and ridden by amateur jockey Sam Waley-Cohen on his retirement ride, has won the Grand National at Aintree.

‘I can’t say anything but that’s a dream,’ Waley-Cohen said. ‘It has been a love affair, they aren’t all good days. There are bad days in this sport. That is beyond what I was thinking, it’s a fairytale and a fantasy.’ 

Waley-Cohen’s father Robert, Noble Yeats’ owner, was overcome by emotion in the immediate aftermath.

‘I’m really emotional,’ he told ITV Sport. ‘I’m lost for words, unbelievable. Fabulous.’ 

Rachael Blackmore’s Minella Times, last year’s winner, did not finish.
