Gordon Elliott To Be Mob Handed For 2019 Grand National With Tiger Roll The Star Runner

Gordon Elliott Could Run Up To 12 Horses In The Grand National On Saturday

We are now just five days away from the Grand National and Gordon Elliott is set to head to Aintree with perhaps the biggest team of runners ever assembled.

The Irish handler is reportedly set to run up to 12 runners in the race as he looks to win the National for a third time. Defending champion Tiger Roll will spearhead the team for Elliott and he remains the red hot favourite to become the first horse since Red Rum to win the race in successive years but he won't be the only runner from his yard with half a chance.

Alpha Des Obeaux, Shattered Love and The Storyteller are three of of the Elliott team that won't run while Out Sam, Borice and Measureofmydreams are unlikely to make the cut.

As things stand though, the rest of the entries from from the famous Irish trainer do look set to take the chance with 12 runners now a clear possibility, which would be the most runners for one trainer in the history of the world's most famous steeplechase.

Elliott broke on to the training scene when Silver Birch won the Grand National in 2007 and his star has been growing ever since. Tiger Roll was a brilliant winner of the Cross Country Chase at Cheltenham last month and many do believe that he has a genuine chance of claiming the Aintree race once again.

Of the other Elliott runners, Jury Duty is the next best in the ante-post betting after his impressive win at Down Royal last month and Noble Endeavour who ran a solid race at Cheltenham last time out and should be suited to the conditions at Aintree this weekend.
