Grand National: Elliott points to Tiger Roll return

Dual Grand National winner Tiger Roll heads 19 Gordon Elliott entries for this year's renewal and could well bid to equal Red Rum's record three wins at Aintree on April 9th.

The 12-year-old has been given a rating of 161 and a weight of 11st 4lb by the handicapper for the world's greatest steeplechase this year and is 20/1 to create history.

After winning the Merseyside marathon in 2018 and 2019 Tiger Roll's treble bid was undone the following year when the race was cancelled and then his owners decided against another crack at it in 2021.

Elliott said: "Tiger Roll is in very good form at home. We have been training him for Cheltenham all season and we are really looking forward to going back there.

"We will see how Cheltenham goes, but he has got a nice weight, so the Grand National could be on the agenda."

On his most recent outing, Tiger Roll only mustered 14th in a hurdle at Navan, but Elliott added: "The ground was too soft the last day for him. He is coming to himself at home."

Elliott - More still to come

"We decided to run him in the National in 2018 as he had lost his way a little bit, so we had to try and rejuvenate him and it really worked for him.

"I was nervous going into the next year's Grand National, but it was a dream come true to win it for a second time with him."

He concluded: "To have a horse like him is a dream come true, but to win two Grand Nationals with him has just been awesome and I'm very lucky to have him.

"I do think there is still a more in him and we are certainly not finished yet."
