the first time Ive watched this since it took place. Backed West Tip to
win!

tigerboy1966 says:

Such a smooth ride by Dunwoody, I don’t think West Tip knew he was in a
race till the elbow.

waqar khan says:

from 1980 to 1986 no horses died in The Grand Nationals that includes 1988
where no horses but in 1987 & 1989 four horses died but take away these
four horses who in the Grand Nationals the 1980’s was a great year for this
race in British horses calender racing 

waqar khan says:

it’s OK any way thanks for that

waqar khan says:

can all tell me what do all think of channel 4 televise of The Grand
National

mimbrenos says:

Thanks for your comments. Sorry that I don’t have analysis of this race or
footage of the 1982 event.

grincher2006 says:

Good quality field.

mimbrenos says:

Personally, I don’t think the commentators today are as good as Peter
O’Sullevan, or, for that matter, ITV’s Tony Cooke.

mimbrenos says:

Thank you. Great timing !!

grincher2006 says:

thanks for the upload. Its been many years since I have seen this. Do you
have the 1982 Grand National or any of the Tophams or Foxhunters from 1970s
to 1984?

waqar khan says:

thank you for uploading

waqar khan says:

amazing thing is couple of weeks or months west tip had a dangerous
accident with a truck that give the west tip a big scare on his back that
god some how he survived that accident

waqar khan says:

thanks for that and also thanks for telling who is Tony Cooke is sadly he
was commentating well be for my i even new about horse racing i wishes i
could ask if you have recorded any of Tony Cooke commentator but i think
back 60’s video was never invited then but until late 60’s it was released
unfortunely then you have to be rich but in 70’s if have enough money then
you can or could bye video

TheIke1972 says:

The bet was on West Tip by the way.

mimbrenos says:

Sorry, my jump racing uploads have just about run out. Thanks for your
comment.

toonarmysoldierify says:

i have searched for that video for years.. an absolute joy to watch.. plus
i was born less than 48 hours after the race!!

TheIke1972 says:

Thanks for this.Its the first time I’ve seen this since the actual race on
tv 27 years ago.My first ever bet 50p each way.It got me hooked on racing

waqar khan says:

did you that Essex’s Jockey was scared in the race he pulled horse before
the 13th and then late on he swar that he would never send another horse to
Aintree for the grand national ever again

Ryan Saunders says:

My Mum won £900 backing WestTip! money well spent

mimbrenos says:

Jim McGrath I reckon is the best racing commentator nowadays. Tony Cooke
was ITV’s main race commmentator in the 1960’s and 70’s and was very
knowledgeable.

waqar khan says:

poor Chris Grant after this national has fished twice second anding this
grand national which make three time second now a trainer

waqar khan says:

sorry to say this but do you have a post race Analysis and also if you have
the 1982 to Grand National please

waqar khan says:

firstly well don for under standing my question yea your right all though i
would give Jim McGrath a chance who works for ATR as well BBC before 2013
any way can you tell who is Tony Cooke
