Roll up! Roll up! Watch Tiger Roll become the first horse to win consecutive English Grand Nationals since the mighty Red Rum did so in 1974.
It’s rare for a favourite in the betting market to win this 40 runner race, the most watched steeplechase in the world. But Tiger Roll had been well backed for months, including by subscribers to my selection service, VG Tips.
In 2018, Tiger Roll had been a 12/1 winner of the race for members. This year I took 5/1 immediately after his 22 length win in the Cross Country race at the Cheltenham Festival. A lot of punters at the racecourse backed him on the day at odds of 9/2 and 4/1. Whichever price you took, the bookies were less than pleased to see the favourite win the race with relative ease. You knew you were on the winner coming to the final fences.
