The racing and betting community is getting almost feverish about Tiger Roll’s chances of winning the Grand National next weekend. The 2018 winner has seen his odds slashed in the last couple of weeks, after a commanding performance in both the Glenfarclas Chase at Cheltenham and the Boyne Hurdle a month previously.
The best odds for Tiger Roll are now 4/1 with Ladbrokes, with some bookies down at 7/2.
