Leinster Leader owner's horse pipped at the post in the Grand National

Davy Russell Tiger Roll Grand National

Gordon Elliott has won his second Grand National as a trainer as the 10-1 shot Tiger Roll, ridden by Davy Russell, won a tense photo finish from Pleasant Company at Aintree. I can't believe it, to be honest. This is brilliant for the whole yard, for my family at home, everyone.

Tiger Roll was backed at a high of [80.0] in Betfair's Antepost Grand National market on the Exchange, while the victory caps a stunning spring season for Elliott after he landed the Irish National at the start of April, just weeks after ending the Cheltenham Festival as the leading trainer. "We got very close and I'm over the moon". I'm very lucky to be training for the O'Learys.

"I'm very fond of this horse now - I'm thinking of adopting him as my fifth child!"

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. "Past year he made a bad mistake at a crucial stage and that ended it for him".

The eight-year-old victor, who has won three times at the Cheltenham Festival in recent years, including in the cross-country race at last month's event, had come into the race well-fancied.

'I thought I was beat before then but I had to charge Davy Russell down.

He is owned by airline tycoon Michael O'Leary, who also triumphed with Rule The World two years ago.

'I felt sick after a couple of seconds of crossing the line but that's racing'.
