  • Watch: Emotional Davy Russell Makes Touching Tribute After Grand National Triumph

Davy Russell has previously spoken about his childhood dreams of winning this race, today that dream became a reality.

Remarkably, Tiger Roll, owned by Gigginstown House Stud, was also the victor of the Virtual Grand National, a computer-simulated running of the race broadcast on ITV last night. "All the way round I couldn't believe how he was going".

"I've said I didn't appreciate it first time round - I'll definitely appreciate it now".

"It's unbelievable for Davy Russell".

Tiger Roll was backed at a high of [80.0] in Betfair's Antepost Grand National market on the Exchange, while the victory caps a stunning spring season for Elliott after he landed the Irish National at the start of April, just weeks after ending the Cheltenham Festival as the leading trainer.

Bless the Wings (40/1) finished third, well behind Tiger Roll and Pleasant Company (25/1), with Anibale Fly (10/1) taking fourth place on heavy ground under blue skies. I was fighting with Michael O'Leary (owner) telling him to keep this horse at Gigginstown when he retires and he said he wasn't good enough.

One wrote: "I don't normally let my emotions get the best of me but f**k the grand national".

"On the way down the commentator said I was the oldest in the race so I thought "I'd better not come back next year".

Bryony Frost was the pick of the three women jockeys in the world's most famous steeplechase - she was fifth aboard Milansbar.

It was a second major reverse at the hands of an Elliott horse in the space of a fortnight for Mullins, having seen his Isleofhopendreams beaten just a head in the Irish National.
