Mon Mome’s victory is the greatest shock in the Aintree race since 1967 when Foinavon won with the same odds.
William Hill took fewer than 2,000 bets on the winning horse, the highest of which was [pounds sterling]100 each way, with a payout of [pounds sterling]12,500.
A spokesman said: ‘It’s a crackerjack result for bookies. He just wasn’t on the radar for most punters, despite finishing tenth last year.’ Even two false starts failed to put off Mon Mome, who was ridden by 23-year-old Liam Treadwell, and trained by Venetia Williams, who is only the second woman to train a National winner.
The nine-year-old outsider passed the winning post 12 lengths in front of last year’s winner Comply Or Die.
My Will, ridden by two-time National winner Ruby Walsh, was third with State of Play fourth. go to website christmas card sayings
Mon Mome’s owner, Vida Bingham, who is in her 70s, breeds horses as a ‘hobby’, said a friend.
Gerard Faulkner said Mrs Bingham had warned him a few months ago to back the horse. ‘She sent me a Christmas card saying, “I have just bought this horse, look out for it”. I wish I had put a bet on,’ he admitted.
WINNER: Mon Mome
