Free horse racing tip for the Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse on Monday 17 April. Being responsible for 21 of the 74 horses left in Easter Monday’s BoyleSports Irish National it is not surprising that the sponsor make leading Irish trainer Gordon Elliott no bigger than 2-1 to take the 500,000 euro contest, securing that country’s national hunt championship in the process over arch rival Willie Mullins.
At the five-day declaration stage Elliott is guaranteed to have at least eleven runners, although the likes of Killer Crow and Double Scores stand little chance of making the cut along with the Mullins’ main contender The Crafty Butcher who needs plenty to drop out in order to make the final line up.Back Tiger Roll at 20/1 with Paddy Power

Noble Endeavour is the shortest priced of the Elliott contingent at a standout 14-1 with Betfair Sportsbook but the eight-year-old may end up with top weight should stablemate Lord Scoundrel pull out whereas further down the handicap the Gigginstown-owned Tiger Roll is preferred for this week’s racing tip at the 20-1 available with Irish bookmaker Paddy Power.
The 3m 5f trip will hold no fears for the son of Derby winner Authorized who stayed on strongly to win the 4m JT McNamara National Hunt Chase at the Cheltenham Festival on his most recent start and at just seven is open to plenty more improvement. That was the second festival victory for the gelding who also won the 2014 Triumph Hurdle and a mark of 145 looks more than lenient for a horse of his ability.
With Gigginstown almost certain to be mob-handed in the marathon contest including the novice Alpha Des Obeaux who is due plenty of respect along with Road To Respect and General Principle but it is Tiger Roll who ticks all of the boxes and can settle the trainers’ championship in favour of his talented handler.
