In that period there have also been four eight-year-old and two twelve-year-old winner. The last teenager to win the race was over 90 years ago (Sergeant Murphy in 1923), although 13-year-old Vics Canvas was a gallant 3rd in 2016 at odds of 100/1. While the last 7-year-old to win the Grand National was in 1940!
