  • Murphy looks over his right shoulder and sees King John's Castle coming at him hard. They race towards the elbow. It's Comply or Die in front. Snowy Morning is coming again, King John's Castle the outside. Comply or Die, punched out by Murphy, leads by three or four lengths, and is going to go on and win the Grand National! It's Comply or Die, Timmy Murphy who wins the Grand National.
