Tiger Roll wins 2018 Grand National in dramatic finish at Aintree

Tatt's the spirit! A woman's equestrian-inspired inking made for the perfect accessory

Elliott, who caught the ferry home to Ireland on Saturday night, was back in his yard in Longwood, County Meath, yesterday morning and said: 'When you see everyone and there's a bit of a buzz about the place, it starts to sink in a bit. I won the National a thousand times in the back garden but never like that!

The virtual race, which was uniquely developed to feature the 40 declared runners and riders from the 2018 Grand National field, used complex data algorithms to eventually predict Tiger Roll as the victor of the 2018 Grand National.

In the last few desperate strides the winning post arrived just in time as the pair flashed past the line together, with Tiger Roll just nicking it.

Eight-year-old Tiger Roll, who scored at odds of 10-1 for jockey Davy Russell, has fast become a crowd favourite, having already won the Glenfarclas Cross-Country Chase at Cheltenham, adding to his previous triumphs at Prestbury Park in the Triumph Hurdle and the National Hunt Chase.

"Davy has been a good friend more than anything". "But then I thought "well, Davy's 38 - he hasn't got many left in him".

'Davy's a brilliant man and such a good horseman.

Time to Reconsider Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT) After Less Short Sellers?
The transaction was disclosed in a filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is accessible through the SEC website . Headlines about Target (NYSE: TGT ) have been trending somewhat positive on Monday, according to Accern Sentiment Analysis.

Speaking of tea, Russell was famously relieved of his retained rider's role by winning owners Gigginstown House Stud over a quiet mug, and the resiliency he showed to keep his counsel and knuckle down after losing one of the biggest jobs in racing wasn't lost on connections.

Tiger Roll, who held on to win the race from Pleasant Company in a photo finish for trainer Gordon Elliott, has returned home safely.

"It's known we've had our ups and our downs", O'Leary remarked.

He told Sportsmail: 'I really didn't think riding on Sunday was on the table.

Total Recall's rival for favouritism Blaklion didn't give his backers any joy at all coming down at the first whilst Ucello Conti led for a large part of the race but came to grief as he exhausted. "I can't believe it", said Russell of the thrilling win. "He is extraordinary but he has a master trainer in Gordon". "To be champion trainer in Ireland in the past you needed to win 50 or 60 races, but now you need to win 100-plus, and he's doing that". Tiger Roll even swept past Pleasant Company easily at the last fence and was six lengths clear with a furlong to run, and was seemingly set to be one of the race's most comfortable winners of recent times. And next week is certainly going to be one to savour.
