First held in 1839, The Grand National has become more than just a horse race, it has become a staple event in the British cultural calendar.

Now the most valuable jumps race in all of Europe, since 2017, winners of the Aintree race can expect to walk away from Merseyside with more than a million pounds under the bridle.

But while the race has been run and won for more than 180 years, only six horses have proven good enough to pass the post first more than once.

From a sterling pioneer stayer to a contemporary champion that claimed back-to-back honours, here is the sextet of horses, trainers and jockeys to have tasted Grand National glory on multiple occasions.
