Two-time Grand National winner Tiger Roll will compete for a historic third victory in April.
Trainer Gordon Elliott claims before returning to Aintree, that the nine-year-old will contest two races at the New Year.
Jockey Davy Russell will, partners again by winning back-to-back Nationals tiger Roll, that emulated Red Rum.
Even though the intention isn’t to race often during the season he is also being trying to get a bid to win a Cheltenham Festival.
“We’re going to need to head him now and pick and choose where people go,” Elliott said in a meeting using Aintree Racecourse.
“He will likely have one run over hurdles, possibly something similar to the Boyne Hurdle [at Navan in February] again.
“He will return to Cheltenham [in March] for the Cross Country race then we’ll go for your Randox Health Grand National.”

Obviously, he’ll get plenty but, at Aintree, that horse thrives such as Red Rum, which makes the famous obstacles appear easy as he glanced about them.
And while those people who grew up watching’Rummy’ from the 1970s will consider him as the Aintree icon, you have to be a certain age to recall at all, therefore a legend is great.
