Grand National ends in photo finish

Women in orange

It has not all been plain sailing for Russell in recent weeks.

Russell, who was once sacked by O'Leary, lost his mother recently but his thoughts were for champion flat jockey Pat Smullen, who has been diagnosed with a tumour.

'I was speaking to him the other morning and he's as tough as nails'.

Saint Are, who was kept overnight at the Aintree racecourse stables after a fall in Saturday's Randox Health Grand National, has received an upbeat report from his trainer Tom George.

However, Russell was planning to have a quiet one.

"Tiger Roll is unbelievable and I'm very lucky to be training for the O'Learys".

Manchester City Win 2017/18 Premier League Title, With 5 Games Remaining
Jose Mourinho has ruled out bringing in another striker this summer, with Manchester United already well-stocked up front. Manchester City, who had bounced back after a week of dismal performances trounced Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 on Saturday.

"I've won this race a thousand times in my head", jockey Davy Russell said after the win, per Horse Racing Nation.

Total Recall's rival for favouritism Blaklion didn't give his backers any joy at all coming down at the first whilst Ucello Conti led for a large part of the race but came to grief as he exhausted.

"It's well known we parted company over the most legendary cup of tea in racing". I answered an advert on the internet for a share in a horse about five years ago and Del Boy was bought by Harvey at Doncaster sales after coming over from Ireland.

The Randox Health Grand National 2018 promised us three days of passion, thrills and entertainment, and it didn't disappoint.

Elliott also trained third-place Bless The Wings, while the Irish completed a cleansweep of the top four with Anibale Fly.

Tiger Roll is looked after at Elliott's yard by Louise Magee, who said: "It was unbelievable, something you dream about, just fantastic".

Mainz beat Freiburg 2-0 in Bundesliga bottom clash
Premier League clubs have voted against introducing VAR technology for next season, preferring to continue with tests. The win took Mainz out of the bottom three with their opponents dropping down to the relegation play-off place.

"He (Pleasant Company) seemed to get a little bit exhausted and then get a second wind". Katie Walsh is the highest-placed woman in the race's history with her third on Seabass in 2012; she rides the seven-year-old mare Baie Des Iles, trained in Co Kildare by her husband, Ross O'Sullivan. He jumped from fence to fence and you couldn't ask for any better.

"I was nervous when they announced the photo finish - I thought I had it but you are so nervous watching it", said the winning trainer.

"I'm really proud of him, he jumped fantastic and he's one for next year".

Tiger Roll might be small in stature but he's a giant in his heart and he's just claimed an incredible win in the Grand National.

"I'm still jumping every fence with him and I dreamt well last night and apparently he did, too. I just wanted him to keep going to the winning post!"
