TIGER ROLL 5/1 for eNational Glory

Tiger Roll will have his chance to become the first horse to win three successive Grand Nationals this Saturday, however it won’t be in real life but via a computer-simulated version of the race.

The Gordon Elliott trained Tiger Roll has become a household name over the last few years, especially after his triumphant 2019 appearance at Aintree when he claimed the Grand National for the second year in a row, emulating the great Red Rum.

After news broke that the 2020 renewal had been cancelled, halting the horse of a lifetime from winning a third successive Grand National, it was decided that a virtual Grand National would take place on ITV this Saturday with all proceeds going to Health Service Related charities across the UK and Ireland.

The Mater is at the centre of the fight against Covid-19 and BoyleSports will donate all profits made from the race to this foundation to help them carry out their terrific work, not just during the coronavirus, but all year round.

Tiger Roll won the virtual version of the race in 2018 and completed the double by winning the actual race. Owned by Gigginstown House Stud, this wonder-horse is 5/1 to win another virtual title on Saturday.

The Ted Walsh-trained Any Second Now is the current 10/1 second favourite, with last year’s BoyleSports Irish Grand National winner Burrows saint at 12/1 for Willie Mullins. This won’t be the champion trainer’s first virtual title as Rathvinden won the 2019 version and finished third in the actual race itself, so the computer-simulated version has an impressive strike rate compared to the real version.

Tiger Roll has a big contender to be worried about in the virtual Grand National as Kimberlite Candy won the Grade Three Handicap Chase at Warwick for trainer Tom Lacey pulling away from his rivals and was fancied to win the big one at Aintree with odds of 16/1 available for a virtual title.

Leon Blanche, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “We are thrilled to be able to donate all proceeds we make from the virtual Grand National to the Mater Foundation. The Mater Hospital is the national centre for lung health in Ireland and for adult emergency respiratory life support. All the doctors and nurses at the Mater will be at the centre of the fight against Covid-19, so we wanted to choose this foundation to help them continue to carry out their excellent and vital work in helping to fight this virus.”
