Grand National winning trainer Nick Gaselee had a successful career as an amateur rider in the sixties, winning more than 100 races including the Kim Muir Chase and the Foxhunters at Cheltenham, and the Moet and Chandon Silver Magnum.

He took out his licence in 1977 after spending five years as Assistant to the legendary Fulke Walwyn, and now runs a mixed yard of some 30 horses.

Party Politics' win at Aintree must rank as the highlight of his career, but plenty of other big race victories have come his way, notably the  Cathcart Challenge Cup and National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham, the Tote Free Handicap Hurdle, the Reynoldstown Chase (twice), the Tingle Creek Handicap and the Timeform Hurdle. 

Private Views and Bolands Cross would join Party Politics as some of the best horses he has trained.
