Macdermott wins Scottish Grand National thriller as legendary trainer Willie Mullins edges closer to history

Macdermott stormed to Scottish Grand National glory to claim the £200,000 prize in front of a sell-out crowd at Ayr racecourse.

The 18/1 shot won for legendary trainer Willie Mullins with jockey Danny Danny Mullins riding home ahead of his 25 rivals in a thrilling race and the highlight of the jumps calendar north of the border. Legendary trainer Mullins had six runners in the race and the victory means he is now well on course to become just the second Irish trainer to claim the UK jumps championship 70 years after Vincent O’Brien secured the prize for a second time. It was Ireland's first winner in the race since 1869.

Mullins - who had the 1-4-5-6 in the race - has now won the Cheltenham Gold Cup, Champion Hurdle, Grand National and Scottish Grand National. Surrey Quest was second at 20/1 and favourite Git Maker third.
