Comparisons between Tiger Roll and Grand National legend Red Rum are compelling

Ireland's Tiger Roll on Saturday won the English Grand National in a photo finish at Aintree.

With the race seemingly wrapped up, Pleasant Company made a remarkable comeback as the leader exhausted but the finish line came one stride too soon as Tiger Roll held on for the win. I just think he was a bit shaken.

'I was up this morning, into work for eight, mucked out, rushed home, rushed to Tesco to get a load of candies and cake for Neil's staff so they'll all be having some breakfast on Monday morning.

However, Russell later also paid tribute to his mother. "She would get me out of bed at six in the morning and drive me round the country".

Gordon repeated his first and third from the Grand National yesterday, this time in a more modest contest of a maiden hurdle at the Waterford venue. I said I didn't appreciate the first time round.

Elliott said he hadn't wanted to buy the horse when he and O'Leary went to the sales. I thought I'd have one crack at him after the Elbow.

"I threw the toys out of the pram and was effing and blinding but he of course has been proved right".

The 10-year-old victor is owned by Ryanair chief executive Michael O'Leary and trained by Gordon Elliott.

Another similarity is that both horses are small - titchy in comparison to. "He is extraordinary but he has a master trainer in Gordon".

Bless The Wings, the winner's stablemate was third, and Anibale Fly was fourth, as Irish runners dominated.

"He is incredible, he made a few mistakes early on and then gave me a wonderful ride.fifth in the National!" said Frost. "For sure I was aware of David coming back at me and I had a big fear I'd lost the photo - there'd probably be no consoling that one".

The official winning distance was a head in favour of Tiger Roll, who is owned by Ryanair chief executive Michael O'Leary's Gigginstown House Stud, who won the race with Rule The World in 2016.

Before that positive update broke, one wrote: "I don't normally let my emotions get the best of me but f**k the grand national".

The focus of both men will now be on matters at home, with Elliott currently holding a significant lead over Mullins as he bids to be crowned champion trainer for the first time.
