Village turns out to welcome home Grand National champion Tiger Roll

Anibale Fly can land the Grand National for owner JP McManus

This year Grand National victor Tiger Roll received a hero's welcome as the champion horse and his trainer Gordon Elliott were treated to a rapturous homecoming in the village of Summerhill in Co Meath the day after their famous win in what must have been a demanding 24 hours for the connections!

Gordon repeated his first and third from the Grand National yesterday, this time in a more modest contest of a maiden hurdle at the Waterford venue.

Speaking of tea, Russell was famously relieved of his retained rider's role by winning owners Gigginstown House Stud over a quiet mug, and the resiliency he showed to keep his counsel and knuckle down after losing one of the biggest jobs in racing wasn't lost on connections.

"That was four or five years ago, and it says much about Davy's resilience the way he bounced back".

"When we were coming in somebody said to us why don't you enter so I did. It's just fantastic to have finally done it", added the jockey who lost his mother Phyllis before the Cheltenham Festival.

After the race, Russell paid tribute to close friend Pat Smullen, a multiple champion Flat jockey, who was diagnosed with a tumour last month. Not a very promising start, one might assume, as far as winning the Grand National is concerned.

Bless The Wing, another Elliott-trained horse, finished third with Anibale Fly fourth, completing an Irish clean sweep of the places.

"He (Pleasant Company) seemed to get a little bit exhausted and then get a second wind". He jumped from fence to fence and you couldn't ask for any better. I thought I had it, but you're so nervous watching it. I'm very lucky to be training for the O'Learys.

And it looks like Kylie Jenner has got a babysitter for the weekend, as she's confirmed her attendance. In a second Instagram photo, she gave fans a frontal view of her outfit and her beige nude lipstick.

His David Mullins, who is the nephew of the trainer, said: "I was hoping and praying we'd get there". "In a war of attrition like that, all you want is another stride".

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.

"He's unbelievable. Everyone goes on about his size, but I think it's just all about his heart, he has just so much heart and leaves nothing behind".
