Specify a neck winner of the 1971 National owned by Sir Fred Pontin of Pontins holiday camps. He wanted to change the horse's name to Specify Pontins but Jockey Club rules prevented horses being renamed after they were three-years-old.

Not quoted, a now defunct practice whereby on-course bookmakers would accept bets at odds offered by backers. Cure-All and Pioneer were consecutive winners of the 1845 & 1846 Nationals at 'not quoted' odds.
