Tiger Roll tops 69 Aintree hopefuls in Grand National

Tiger Roll could go off one of the shortest-priced favourites in the race's history following a second successive triumph in the Glenfarclas Chase at Cheltenham last month. Elliott has also left in Outlander, Don Poli, Mala Beach, Dounikos, A Toi Phil, Jury Duty, Noble Endeavor, Monbeg Notorious, Blow By Blow, General Principle, Folsom Blue, Bless The Wings, Out Sam, Borice and Measureofmydreams. Tiger Roll will now have to carry 11st 5lb after the weights were raised 4lb following the defection of Bristol De Mai. Heading the handicap is the Tony Martin-trained Anibale Fly, who was fourth last year and finished second in the Cheltenham Gold Cup on his latest start. Pleasant Company, who failed by only a head to claw back Tiger Roll last year, is among six remaining from the Willie Mullins stable. Also in the Irish champion trainer's team are Rathvinden, Pairofbrowneyes, Up For Review, Livelovelaugh and Isleofhopendreams.
