Saturday's Grand National Horse Race has a record prize fund worth £1 million and Monbeg Dude has made the bookies' top 5 pick to win on the famous Aintree course. The winner of the Welsh National in 2013, Monbeg Dude is co-owned by Gloucester rugby legends Mike Tindall, James Simpson-Daniel and Nicky Robinson.

"In the 2003 Rugby World Cup Final against Australia, we waited until Jonny Wilkinson kicked that injury time drop goal to celebrate the win," says Mike Tindall. "But Monbeg Dude's incredible recovery from a cracked pelvis makes us feel like we've already won this weekend."
