Trainer of the 2016 Grand National winner Mouse Morris was lost for words following Rule the World's surprise win on Saturday.

It has been an emotional year for the renowned trainer, as he lost his son Christopher earlier in the year to tragic circumstances. 

Christopher Morris died from suspected Carbon Monoxide poisoning while travelling South America in June, leaving the family devastated. 

In an interview immediately after the race, Morris was understandably lost for words as he succumbed to his emotions.


Soon after, Morris finally found his voice and poignantly remembered his son, saying that they had some help from above.
