Summary


Mr Snugfit was a big old fashioned steeplechaser, and was extremely unlucky not to have written his name into Grand National history in 1985.

Mr Snugfit tackled the 1985 Grand National and had to carry over a stone more than his allotted weight. Heavily supported in the betting market, he looked sure to prove the market right when hitting the front two out. Battling it out with Last Suspect, he looked set to win after Last Suspect made a blunder jumping the third last . However, Last Suspect responded to the coaxing of jockey Hywel Davies caught Mr Snugfit in the final 40 yards, despite flashing his tail he dug deep to win, leaving our Mr Snugfit to settle with the runners up spot.

The following year Mr Snugfit returned to Aintree and was sent off 13-2 favourite. With three fences left Mr Snugfit and most of the 20 runners in front of him he was shaken up by jockey Phil Tuck and passed all but three and finished in fourth place.
