Out Sam won an incident-packed race for the Paddy Power Cork Grand National.

Twenty horses lined up for this 3 ½ mile chase.

As the tapes went up, it was Juustmemyselfandi who led, with Val De Ferbet and Rogue Angel also up with the pace, along with the grey Oighear Dubh.

Heading down the back, Justmemyselfandi continued to set the tempo.

Nobody Home pressed on down the back, with Rogue Angel and Memyselfandi still close up and then Oighear Dubh and the improving Out Sam.

Five out, Nobody Home led what looked an open field. At the back of the field, Val De Ferbet took a heavy fall.

Nobody Home headed to the third last with Rogue Angel on his coattails and then Out Sam. Minella Beau, still in contention, came down at the third last.

Rogue Angel touched down in front at the third last with Nobody Home and Velocity Boy, but the latter fell two out.

At the last, Out Sam hit the front, with Rogue Angel under pressure.

A good jump kept up the momentum and Out Sam and Davy Russell went on to record a comfortable victory from Gordon Elliott stable mate Rogue Angel, with The Gatechecker third and then Sizing Rome.
