Tiger Rollover! 5 Aintree picks turn £1.20 punt into a 3,175/1 winner

The Aintree Grand National gave punters the winner they wanted, and Tiger Roll's back-to-back success was one of five winners picked by one lucky backer.

Gordon Elliott’s super stayer made a bit of history on Saturday when he became the first horse since Red Rum to win back-to-back Nationals.

And Tiger Roll’s Rolls Royce performance revved up the stakes for one lucky layer this weekend as they put together a fivefold parlay punt that cruised in at a sleek 3,175/1.

The bet of six selections combined into fivefolds got rolling in the first race on Saturday when Aux Ptits Soins made a big statement by winning at 11/1 before If The Cap Fits seized the crown of the Grade 1 Ryanair Stayers Hurdle as a 7/1 shot.

Those two wins paired together made for a tasty return, but this audacious acca was only getting started as the biggest race on National Hunt calendar came into view.

Kildisart, an 8/1 prospect, ramped up the return by topping the Aintree 4.20 field before the big one.

Tiger Roll, fancied by many punters – if not the pundits – to barrel through the 40-runner field could’ve scuppered the big payout if he’d fallen short as fav in the 172nd running of the great race.

But the 7/2 chance didn’t disappoint the faithful and rolled up another win for this shrewd selector from High Wycombe on their way to a bumper windfall.


And Chief Justice in the last race of the day, another 7/1 bet, brought in a fantastic five winners from the parlay.

If Chosen Mate, a 9/1 fifth-place finisher early in the day, had won it would’ve been an even bigger blowout.

Though, even with the tiny stake, the return brought in a £3,811 return for Grand National day – not sure this bettor was picking his horses with a pin in the paper!
