Current Favourite

TIGER ROLL – Last year’s winner Tiger Roll is the favourite for the Grand National. Currently priced around 5/1 he looks to be going off the shortest priced favourite in the last decade. Since winning the Cross Country at Cheltenham by 22 lengths, Tiger Roll was only put 8lb by the handicapper. There is no such thing as a sure thing in the greatest race in the world, however, Tiger Roll must be close to that. Can Tiger Roll break the chain and emulate the great Red Rum?

The first ever winner of the Grand National was called Lottery and that is exactly what this race is. Whether you like the name, or it’s your favourite number any horse really can win this race.
