What happened during last year’s race?

Davy Russell, the oldest jockey in the race, capped a magnificent riding career when he rode Tiger Roll, one of the most accomplished little horses of the last few years, to a dramatic last- gasp victory in the 171st Randox Health Grand National. 

Tiger Roll was a second National winner in three years for Michael O’Leary, Ryanair’s chief executive, and a second for trainer Gordon Elliott who won it with Silver Birch in 2007 before he had ever saddled a winner in Ireland. 

But both men and Russell had to wait for a photo-finish to confirm that their  horse, number 13, had triumphed in the world’s greatest race by a fast diminishing head.
