What a partner Russell had in the pint-sized Tiger Roll - the smallest horse in the race - with the eight-year-old cementing his place in National Hunt folklore after adding the Grand National to his three Cheltenham Festival victories.

Meanwhile, Tiger Roll came in first at the Grand National in a photo finish with Pleasant Company.

The victorious jockey, who is soon to be crowned Ireland's champion jump jockey, was the oldest rider in the race aged 38 and was claiming his first ever Randox Health Grand National success - he described his win as "outstanding". "It would have been heartbreaking". Asked how his heart was at the finish, O'Leary said: "My heart is wonderful - though some people don't think I have one!"

Don't miss the full report from the Randox Health Grand National - including analysis, pictures and comment - in the 19 April issue of Horse & Hound.

Willie Mullins, who saddled the 25/1 runner-up Pleasant Company, said: "We were delighted with him - he jumped from fence to fence, and while it looked like he got a bit exhausted going to the second-last fence he got his second wind and ran on again".

"The Gold Cup is the Gold Cup and I've been lucky enough to win that (aboard Lord Windermere in 2014), but the National is so hard to win".

"This one is for Pat Smullen".

'I was up this morning, into work for eight, mucked out, rushed home, rushed to Tesco to get a load of candies and cake for Neil's staff so they'll all be having some breakfast on Monday morning.

Dedicating the victory to fellow jockey Pat Smullen - who was diagnosed with cancer last month - proclaiming him "as tough as nails so this one's for Pat" and his late mother Phyllis, the showpiece had delivered its usual drama. "And it's the way he keeps coming back and back again".

Leading owners Gigginstown House Stud, led by Ryanair supremo Michael O'Leary, won the National two years ago with Rule The World. "She always did what was best for her children", he said.

He said: "It's been an unbelievable training performance from Gordon to turn him from a Triumph Hurdle victor into a National victor".

L'Ami Serge was an impressive victor of the Aintree Hurdle on Thursday and has been declared to run in the Grade One Ryanair Stayers Hurdle.
