The steeplechase was won by Kellsboro' Jack, a 25/1 shot ridden by jockey Dudley Williams. The seven-year-old horse was trained by Ivor Anthony for American owner F. Ambrose Clark. Anthony would go on to train another National winner in Royal Mail, in 1937.
In second place was Really True, Slater finished third, and Delaneige fourth. Thirty-four horses ran and all returned safely to the stables.
