Grand National video

I hope that asking this is within the rules of the chit chat board.
I missed the Grand National this afternoon, and don't know the result yet. I'd like to watch a video stream of the race without finding out the result first. I tried searching for Grand National on the BBC iPlayer, but it didn't find today's race.
Obviously I could try using a search engine, but that risks bringing up headlines that tell me the result.
Would a kind person please post a link to a video stream of the race, so I can watch it without knowing the result? I don't mind what site it is (I assume BBC Sport has it), but it does have to be a legal site.
Thanks in advance.
Rob

Re: Grand National video

Thanks for the links. I felt a bit stupid cheering on my horses when the race had finished hours ago, but one of mine came in 2nd, so I'm a tenner up on the day.

Re: Grand National video

Thanks. Unfortunately, I caught a glimpse of the sports headlines to the right before I watched the video.
Other places to watch it are:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00rzv2q/The_Grand_National_2011_Highlights/ (BBC 1)
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0103wqw/5_live_Sport_The_Grand_National_09_04_2011/ (Radio 5 Live)
No winnings for me this year.

Re: Grand National video

I've noticed that with radio clips - they never seem to have video with them.

Re: Grand National video

The reason I didn't supply the iPlayer link, was because I presumed as you couldn't find it yourself you must be excluded from iPlayer.

Re: Grand National video

I didn't try searching at all, because I didn't want to find out the result by mistake. Of course I now realise that there was little chance of iPlayer telling me the result.
Thanks again.
