  • Description

    Full titles read: "The National Hunt Steeplechase - "Cryptical"... ridden by Major Cavanagh... wins Amateur Riders' Grand National in field of 32 runners."

    Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

    High angle L/S of jockeys on horses and people milling about a field before the horse race begins. The jockeys on horseback are led around the outside of the field, past the spectators; the horses trot to the starting point. Nice M/S of the horses lining up at the starting point; the line is dropped and they start off.

    Several shots of the race; some horses fall at the fences. A horrible fall by one of the horses at the water jump; two other riders are thrown as their horses run past. High angle L/S of the horses crossing the finishing line. M/S of a jockey riding his horse into the winning enclosure; this is probably the winner, 'Cryptical', ridden by Major Cavanagh. Other horses, steaming heavily, are seen in the enclosure.
