WHERE THEY FINISHED WHERE THEY FELL.

THERE was one fatality in yesterday's big race.

Rust Never Sleeps, a 12-year-old trained in Ireland by Donal Hassett, was pulled up lame before the 13th fence and was later found to have broken a shoulder and destroyed.

Party Politics and Carl Llewellyn, the victorious combination in 1992, got only as far as the third fence this time, where the veteran 12-year- old came to grief.

Llewellyn said: "I'm OK and the horse is OK as far as I know. I've experienced the highs of the Grand National - unfortunately this year is one of the lows."
