It is estimated that the National double belar hurdle Winner and Redditch will relieve Book makers of approximately �25,000. After today s race one Ringman said that he had Laid �9,000 against the winning double. Included in that was a bet of �3,000 to �36. Redditch who was one of the hottest favourites in the history of the race started at 7 to 4 against and won by eight lengths from the cracks Man 7 to 2with Moss trooper 7 to 1 five lengths further away. Not Only did Redditch record a spectacular Vic tory but he established a new race record of 6 min. 5 Sec. Thus clipping 3f seconds off the previous Best time registered by Sandhurst in 1929. Dominated the betting at the course Redditch opened at 6 to but plenty of offers of 7 to 4 were available As the horses were at the bar Rier. Redditch was one of the Best supported horses from the Issue of weight and in the National eve discussions More Thau twice the amount invested on the whole of the other acceptors was placed on red ditch. All this week the Winner has dominated i the discussions although after the i cracks Man s win in the Steepl chasers i Flat on wednesday the South australian j gained friends. However at no time did he threaten to Oast Redditch from. Favouritism. When doubles were being Laid on the j two nationals there was Seldom a bet Ter Ofier than 200 to 1 Agapit belar and Redditch. Today there was a decrease in Tot Aliea Tor investment compared with Las tear s National but of course the Small afield accounted for that. For a win �3,069 12,276 tickets and for for a place �3,768 5/ 15,073 tickets was placed in the machine. ? contrary to expectations Redditch did not assert his superiority until about a mile from Home. Inkson was quite con Lent to allow his mount to bowl along precocious being the pacemaker when Redditch was allowed his head he jumped More freely and his All round superiority was instantly shown. He bounded away from his opponents and As far As six furlongs from Home the race was virtually All Over. Redditch thus maintained the Good record of favourites and. Heavily weighted horses in this event. The Story of the National can be summed up by saying that Redditch was never at his top. He outpaced out jumped. And out stayed his opponents. Redditch is a beautifully proportioned Uve year old Brelding by red Dennis from Kenilworth Queen to that on both sides he has Brand Breeding lines. Versatile jumper the welding has proved a versatile jumper. He readily took to this Branch of the business and made Eood immediately he was put to hurdling. He did likewise As a steeplechase and for gome time be has dominated discussions on the race. Redditch is trained at Mentone by f. W. Hoysted. Although this Mentor has had his share of bad Luck be has had a really remarkable season that was capped by the great performance of Redditch to Day. In fion scored two years ago on Rak Wool. The Las named was also trained by Hoys Ted. Redditch and Inkson received a. Wonderful reception. Cheering broke out before the finishing line was reached and continued Richt until the jockey weighed in. The cracks Man registered ? credit Able performance but was no match for the Winner. For two and a half Miles this South australian owned gelding did really Well but the last half mile found him out and he finished very tired. Not once during the race did the cracks Man put a toe wrong. Old Moss Tooper plodded along into third place ind the crowd did not forget to give this Veteran a cheer As he made his Way Backo the enclosure. It was surprising. To see precocious act no a pacemaker. Last year s Winner however was done with As far As a mile rom Home but besides the place getters be was the Only other to finish. Greco ious should do Well in the australian steeplechase to be run at Caulfield next North Paris came to grief very Early in the race and Corong and shooting boy also fell Flavido who jumped scratchly was eventually pulled up at the six fur Long Post. Although numerically the Field was Dis appointing the performance of Redditch compensated spectators for this. Jockeys stories after the race Inkson said that red ditch which was purchased by or. A. L Yuille for �60, made Only a couple of faulty jumps. He screwed at a couple of fences at the Back of the course but thie waa caused by precocious running Down his fences and getting just in front of the favorite. Inkson did not try to make Hedditch Lead All the Way. It is All right leading All the Way if you succeed he said. But if beaten you Are condemned for making a horse carry his big weight from Barrier Rise to the judge. 1 passed precocious leaving the straight because of that horse s faulty jumping Inkson does not suffer from nerves. In such an important race he said riders Haven t tin to waste a split second on self pity. To ride in a grand National requires an immense amount of concentration t. Butler the cracks Man and d. Zealley Moss trooper said their mounts did not jump Well. R. Sweetnam precocious said that he would have earned a place had Hie mount jumped ran Well until jumbo was reached.
