HORSES to note for the 2019 Grand National? Tiger Roll for sure. He will be nine and he will have more weight to carry than he did this year, but he still has to be at the top of your list.

Red Rum was eight when he won the first of his three Grand Nationals in 1973. At the time, he was just another Grand National winner, he was the villain in the Crisp tragedy. They didn’t know then the National hero that Red Rum would become.
