Tiger Roll’s 7-2: A Ridiculous Price?

Tiger will be on a roll today

The Grand National is still the greatest spectacle in horse racing and should Tiger Roll  become the first horse to win it back-to-back since Red Rum in 1974 Gordon Elliott’s charge will bring the house down.

He prevailed by a paper thin margin last year but his subsequent exploits strongly suggest he’s a lot better now.

He demolished some cross-country specialists in the Glenfarclas at Cheltenham and in one of the biggest sustained gambles of recent times has been backed into 7-2 which is a ridiculous price for any horse in the National.

Even the immortal Red Rum never started shorter than 9-1 for any of his three victories.
