Tiger Roll will remain in training "all going well" - Gordon Elliott


Trainer Gordon Elliott has confirmed that dual Aintree Grand National winner Tiger Roll will stay in training “all going well”.
Elliott says the 10-year-old came out of his seasonal debut at Navan well, and that his next stop will be an attempt to register a fifth festival victory at Cheltenham next month.
Tiger Roll landed the Cross Country 13-months ago in advance of landing his second Grand National title.
While Andy Dufresne will lead the Meath handler's charge for a third win in four years in the Grade Two Paddy Power Betting Shop Novice Hurdle at Naas on Sunday.
“We decided to skip Cheltenham with Andy Dufresne this year as there are a number of nice races for him at home in the spring and this race is the first of them," Elliott confirmed at his stable tour today.
“I thought he did well to win at Punchestown last month and I really liked the way he battled to get on top after the last and I’ve been happy with him since then.
"He seems very well in himself. We’ve a couple of other nice young horses in the race as well and we’ll just see how they all come through their last bits of work before finalising running plans".
