Davy Russell wins 2018 Grand National aboard Tiger Roll as

Tiger Roll and leading Irish jockey Davy Russell triumphed in a nail-biting photo finish to today's Randox Health Grand National (Saturday, 14 April). Tiger Roll's victory at 10-1 was being hailed by the crowd before cheers turn to anxious cries as the horse either got exhausted or began to idle.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo after her win, Robyn said: "I went for the tiara as I thought that suited the dress the most".

Last year, One For Arthur, trained by Lucinda Russell, scored Scotland's first victory in the National since 1979 and Seeyouatmidnight has a shout at giving the nation a second consecutive win.

The owner of The Leinster Express came within millimetres of winning this year's Grand National but his horse was pipped at the post in one of the most dramatic finishes to the most famous horse races in the world.

Tiger Roll might be small in stature but he's a giant in his heart and he's just claimed an incredible win in the Grand National.

"After yesterday's great result, we'd love to try again and I think we can safely train him for the race". "I can't believe it, to be honest". I said I didn't appreciate the first time round. This is brilliant for the whole yard, for my family at home, everyone.

Russian Federation and its ally Syria called the attack fabricated and said no evidence of chemical weapons use exists in Douma. Saturday's airstrikes drew support from the European Union, Germany, Israel and other allies.

Davy Russell (R) rides Tiger Roll to victory.

"Milansbar is great. He was a touch sore at the racecourse, but he's fine this morning - all good", said King on Sunday. "It's unbelievable for Davy Russell - his father Jerry is, I'm sure, very proud watching him at home".

The Mullins-trained Pleasant Company staged a dramatic late rally, but the judge confirmed Tiger Roll the victor by a head.

Tony Martin's Irish raider made eye-catching late progress to take third place behind the dominant duo of Native River and Might Bite at the Festival last month.

"It was a four-and-a-quarter-mile race and a war of attrition". I answered an advert on the internet for a share in a horse about five years ago and Del Boy was bought by Harvey at Doncaster sales after coming over from Ireland. He ran his heart out.

"He probably did a little bit too much with me, but I had to let him go after jumping the the Chair - he just winged fences". I've won this race a thousand times in my head as a child.
