LONDON, April 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Tiger Roll could become the shortest priced winner in a century should he secure back-to-back wins in the Grand National this weekend.
After a successful Cheltenham, Tiger Roll's odds have been slashed for the National, so Freebets.co.uk decided to take a look behind the numbers of one of the heaviest favourites of all-time.
Built in the form of an infographic, the study found that Tiger Roll has already defied the odds, running with the unlucky number 13 last year where he was priced at 10/1.
The infographic is free to use, subject to adding this link (where more of the latest Grand National betting tips and information awaits too): https://www.freebets.co.uk/grand-national-betting/
* Should Tiger Roll succeed again, it will be trainer Gordon Elliott's third National win, after he also trained Silver Birch to victory back in 2007, while the horse's first trainer Nigel Hawke also won the event in 1991 with Seagram.
* Not since Red Rum in 1974 has a horse won back-to-back races at Aintree and in the Grand National Betting stakes Tiger Roll goes into it at just 4/1. Not since Poethlyn in 1919 has a horse won with such short odds.
* Horses with gastronomic references have a habit of succeeding in the Grand National such as L'Escargot, Red Rum and Oxo, having all previously won the race.
