Who managed not to start the 1993 Grand National twice?

The meeting had been beset by problems before the race. Animal rights protestors got onto the track near the first fence, resulting in a delayed start. A first false start was caused by horses being caught in the starting tape. This occurred again with the second attempt, but after a false start was declared by starter Keith Brown, the recall flag (which signals riders to pull up) was not waved. As a result, 30 of the 39 riders set off around the racetrack.
