Tiger Roll Wins The Grand National For Davy Russell And Gordon Elliott

Tiger Roll exhausted on the run-in as Perfect Company and David Mullins moved to challenge.

The incredible Tiger Roll - remarkably a victor of the 2m Triumph Hurdle as a Juvenile - has won the 2018 Aintree Grand National at Aintree this afternoon, finishing ahead of Pleasant Company, Bless The Wings, and Anibale Fly.

The horse had landed his third Cheltenham Festival success in the Cross-Country Chase last month, to go with previous victories in the Triumph Hurdle and National Hunt Chase.

Tiger Roll, owned by Michael O'Leary, won the race after a photo finish edging out Malcolm Denmark's Pleasant Company.

The reserves are: Thunders And Roses - from the stable of 2016 Grand National victor Mouse Morris, the Sue Smith-trained duo of Delusionofgrandeur and Vintage Clouds and Robert Walford's Walk In The Mill.

"I've won this race a thousand times in my head, in my heart, at home".

Remarkably, Tiger Roll, owned by Gigginstown House Stud, was also the victor of the Virtual Grand National, a computer-simulated running of the race broadcast on ITV last night.

Tiger Roll looked all over a victor at the elbow, but had to scramble for the post to hold off the Willie Mullins-trained Pleasant Company with another Elliott runner Bless The Wings in third.
