THE Jockey Club are to investigate the deaths of Pashto, Do Rightly and Griffins Bar in the Grand National. John Maxse, the Club's press officer, said yesterday: "The deaths occurred before Becher's first time - before the big fences and prior to any lack of stamina coming into question."

Gordon Richards yesterday spoke of the death of his stable star, One Man, at Aintree on Friday. "We all loved him and no-one will miss him more than me. It's heartbreaking walking past his box and not seeing that big grey head popping out to say hello. He knew my voice - we loved one another."
