Jockey Aspell claimed his second consecutive Grand National win by riding the eight-year-old 40/1 shot to victory in the biggest race of the year
Success: Many Clouds won the 2015 Grand National
Leighton Aspell became the first jockey to win the Grand National twice in a row for the first time in over 40 years.
The Irishman rode 40/1 shot Many Clouds to victory to make it two on the bounce after he won at Aintree last year on Pineau de Re.
AP McCoy was denied a fairytale finish to his glittering career as he finished in fifth position on pre-race favourite Shutthefrontdoor.
Saint Are finished in
second position ahead of Monbeg Dude and Alvarado who clocked up third and fourth placed finishes respectively.
Many Clouds took control of the race with two fences to jump and refused to cave to growing pressure from the chasing pack.

Shutthefrontdoor was in second at this point but began to fade badly and dropped three spots to finish in fifth.
Eight-year-old Many Clouds finished strongly and dealt with the late threat of Saint Are to snatch the win.
Thirty-nine runners started the race and, thankfully, all of them survived the taxing course.
