    Tiger Roll was the smallest horse in the race, but had more bounce than Zebedee over the last two fences.

  13. 'Wow'

    Winning jockey, Davy Russell on ITV racing: I can't believe it. That's the man there (pointing at trainer Gordon Elliott). Louise who looks after him does a great job.

  14. Tiger Roll wins the National

    John Hunt

    BBC Radio 5 live commentator at Aintree

    An extraordinary win for this little horse. This is a huge horse racing story, there will only ever be one Red Rum but so many horses have tried to win again and it has taken since 1974 for it to happen again.

    As the sun beats down in Aintree,Tiger Roll has beaten Magic of Light.
