    I can’t remember specifics but seem to remember it being a thing that previous winners have fallen at the first the following year. I think Aldaniti did but is my memory playing tricks on me? Anybody think of any others?

    Aldaniti certainly did. In my memory Hallo Dandy did as well but it might be playing tricks.

    Off the top of my head did Last Suspect and was it Corbiere who fell at the third?

    Corach Rambler race report from Timeform

    met with a fate that had befallen Gay Trip, Aldaniti and Hallo Dandy by exiting following an awkward landing at the first in his repeat bid, falling whilst loose at the next for good measure.

    At least my memory is not playing tricks then!

    Jumpsfan, Hallo Dandy fell at the first in 1985, and Corbiere fell at the fourth in 1986. Last Suspect never fell in the National.

    I wonder if Corach thought this fence been moved and went to overjump not realising the fence had shrunk to

    I’ve definitely backed more first fence fallers than winners of the race!
