Tiger Roll is the 5/1 favourite with Betway, official betting partner of the Randox Health Grand National Festival, following the news that the nine-year-old will seek a record third consecutive success in the £1-million Randox Health Grand National at Aintree in 2020.
Tiger Roll will run only twice this season before bidding to become the first horse in history to win the Randox Health Grand National for a third consecutive year, his trainer Gordon Elliott has revealed.
In April, Tiger Roll emulated the legendary Red Rum to win the world’s greatest steeplechase back to back.
Trainer Gordon Elliott has now confirmed for the first time that the Gigginstown-owned nine-year-old is definitely being aimed at the Aintree showpiece event on Saturday, April 4, 2020, with top jockey Davy Russell named as the man who will partner him again.
However, Tiger Roll will not set foot on a racecourse until the New Year in preparation for his record-breaking attempt, with a bid to win at a fifth Cheltenham Festival also planned.
In an interview with Aintree Racecourse,Gordon Elliott said Tiger Roll has returned to the yard from his summer holiday fit and well. Watch it below:
