Grand National Result: Elliott's Tiger roars to Aintree success

Grand National Result: Elliott's Tiger roars to Aintree success

In an attritional affair that saw numerous 40-runner field fail to complete, David Mullins led for a long way on his father Willie on Pleasant Company, who jumped superbly the whole way around the four-mile-plus course but couldn't hold off the fast-finishing Tiger Roll after he loomed upsides him before two out.

Tiger Roll may have come in first at the Grand National but the real winners were all the fabulously dressed people. "All the way round I couldn't believe how he was going".

While another said: "I just hope Saint Are pulls through, praying for good news".

Bryony Frost was the pick of the three women jockeys in the world's most famous steeplechase - she was fifth aboard Milansbar.

In a battle royale approaching the line, Tiger Roll just held off a late resurgence from the Mullins' horse to edge a photo.

What a phenomenal year for Davy Russell.

"He'd better keep him now".

One wrote: "I don't normally let my emotions get the best of me but f**k the grand national".

She said: "I picked the dress pretty quickly and I got the hat designed for the dress".

Elliott led for much of the way in the race to be crowned champion trainer in his homeland last season, only to be caught by Mullins in the final days of the season.

Tiger Roll looked all over a victor at the elbow, but had to scramble for the post to hold off the Willie Mullins-trained Pleasant Company with another Elliott runner Bless The Wings in third.

"It's been an unbelievable training performance from Gordon to turn him from a Triumph Hurdle victor into a National victor".
