Tiger Roll wins 2018 Grand National in dramatic finish at Aintree

Eager racecogers lined up at the entrance before the gates to the course opened at 11am ready for a day of sporting action

"I've no interest in slowing down", he said. All the way up the run-in I thought he wasn't going to get there and then right on the line I thought we had a shout. To win a National, I probably thought it was all very easy.

All of the 38 Horses who ran The 2018 Randox Health Grand National have returned safely to stables despite concerns for Saint Are.

It's all change now, however, and in the past five weeks Elliott has taken the Irish Independent Leading Trainer Award at Cheltenham for a second time, hit a record-breaking 200 winners (and counting) for the season in Ireland and won his maiden Irish Grand National with General Principle. "I am thinking about my kids at home knowing they can be part of this wonderful event". Del Boy is a stayer and the National is four and half miles and he is a good ride who likes to lead from the front and the quicker the race the better he goes as long as the ground has a bit of give.

"We send horses to lots of trainers, and those that train winners get more horses, those that don't get less, and Gordon is setting different standards".

Coming in fifth place on Milansbar, Bryony Frost had an excellent showing in her first-ever ride at the Grand National.

The horse fell halfway through the race and a green tent was erected around it in front of anxious spectators.
