Tiger Roll favourite for National repeat

Grand National winner Tiger Roll is already being made favourite to repeat the feat next year.

Gordon Elliot’s eight-year old secured the most famed title in horse racing when he held of Pleasant Company to take the honours at Aintree.

Tiger Roll is looked after at Elliott’s yard by Louise Magee, who said: “It was amazing, something you dream about, just fantastic.

“We stood over in the middle of the track, so we could see the big screen, and it was a good spot to watch it.

“He’s unbelievable. Everyone goes on about his size, but I think it’s just all about his heart, he has just so much heart and leaves nothing behind.

“He’s a star. He’s grumpy, but very lovable. He’s a little character. He’d let you know if he didn’t want you in the stable. He’s a funny, little quirky horse, but he’s lovely.”

He is now 16/1 to seal the win again in 12-months time, whilst runner-up Pleasant Company is 20/1.

“At The Elbow, the well-backed Tiger Roll’s victory looked to be a formality, before Pleasant Company’s brave comeback gave the bookies a glimmer of hope, and with just a head between them at the line, the pair are the early market leaders for next year’s Grand National,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
