Tiger Roll wins successive Grand Nationals

Tiger Roll, trained by Gordon Elliott and ridden by Davy Russell, has won the Randox Health Grand National at Aintree.

The horse rewrote the Grand National history books and emulated Red Rum with an emphatic victory.

Elliott's diminutive hero took over going to the last and easily kept the rest at bay, with Jessica Harrington's mare Magic Of Light his nearest pursuer at odds of 66-1.
