Mr Incredible Grand National Wins
Mr Incredible has never won the Grand National.
They have never finished the race.
In the early part of his career, Mr Incredible was lucky enough to spend time under two of the biggest and best trainers in Ireland, beginning with Henry de Bromhead and moving over to Willie Mullins afterwards.
Foaled in 2016, the horse started in a point-to-point race before running in two hurdles, then quickly making the transition to chasing, which was clearly always going to be where he would be seen at his best.
The horse is a little quirky and, in the past, has actually refused to race at the start, he’s got a mind of his own and will always have punters on the edge of their seats at the start if they’ve backed him.
After showing a good level of form and improving the further he goes in trip, the horse has become a Grand National horse, and he will make his debut in the race in 2023.

Mr Incredible’s Early Years
There was very little from Mr Incredible before he went chasing under rules, as though connections of the horse knew what he would become and wanted to rush him through to chasing. He ran in just one point-to-point race before moving to the Henry de Bromhead yard, a race where he would finish second.
His rules debut came in December 2020, just two months after that first point-to-point run, and this was in a maiden hurdle at Leopardstown. He finished second again, but this was a top race, with future Grade One winner Gaillard Du Mesnil winning the contest.
A month later, his second hurdle start would result in a win, and that would be all we would see from the horse over the smaller obstacles, chasing would come in the following season.
In November 2021, Mr Incredible won his chasing debut at Naas before being sent across the Irish Sea to Newbury. He would run a great race in a Grade Two novice chase at Newbury, finishing second behind Ahoy Senor.
Mr Incredible’s Big Race Wins
Mr Incredible is yet to win a big race in his career but has put up some good performances in top-quality staying chases to show his potential for the future.
He’s finished second in the Classic Chase at Warwick, a 3m5f staying race, as well as finishing third in the Kim Muir, another staying handicap, with this one taking place at the Cheltenham Festival.
