TIGER ROLL CONFIRMED AS GRAND NATIONAL ENTRY

Will Tiger Roll emulate Red Rum and win the Grand National for the third time? There are a staggering 105 entries for the £1million Randox Health Grand National but most of the focus will be taken up on the anticipation of the Gordon Elliott trained, Tiger Roll, as he bids to score a Hat-trick of wins in the peoples race!

Tiger Roll has famously won the Grand National for the last two years running. If he makes it a third win he would equal the record set by Red Rum, who took the Grand National top spot, three times between 1973 and 1977. Tiger Roll will be partnered again by jockey Davy Russell.

Trainer Gordon Elliott has given himself the best possible chance of another success by making a total of 18 entries. This is more than any other trainer at the event. If Elliott is successful, it will be for a fourth time and the Irishman would become the joint most successful trainer in Grand National history. Owned by Michael O’Leary’s Gigginstown House Stud, Tiger Roll is currently priced as favourite amongst many bookmakers.

Tiger Roll will not be the only previous Grand National winner in the running though. 2017 winner, One For Arthur, became only the second Scottish-trained scorer following on from Rubstic in 1979. In last year’s Grand National, he came a respectable sixth place.

If he manages to upset Tiger Rolls attempt for a hat-trick and regains the Grand National, it will be only the fifth time in history that a horse has regained the status of National winner. Previous horses to do this are: Red Rum (1973, 1974, 1977), Manifesto (1897 & 1899), The Lamb (1868 & 1871) and Peter Simple (1849 & 1853).

Owner Michael O’Leary had suggested bidding for a third triumph for Tiger Roll was unlikely but we aren’t surprised that he couldn’t resist an attempt at making more history with the horse.

The RANDOX HEALTH GRAND NATIONAL 2020 will take place on Saturday the 4th of April.
