Horse Racing tips: Why Tiger Roll could be one to avoid at Navan on Sunday

Three racing brains discuss the superstar's return to action in the 1.50.

Tiger Roll jumping



Tiger Roll certainly doesn’t need to win here. I think a safe trip round and finishing up fourth of fifth they would be happy enough.

They’ve been pretty honest and open saying he’s not at the same level of fitness he was in this race last year. I think a safe round of jumping is all they really want.

Tiger Roll Grand National


This is a tough race for a bet. You just want to see Tiger Roll run well.

They’re saying he’s not fit, but they said the same last year when he bolted up in the race.

If I was having a bet I’d probably have a chance on KILFENORA. He’s improving this year and has won a couple of nice handicaps rather impressively.



I wouldn’t be surprised if Tiger Roll went and won. I think he’ll be a decent price, but the main aim for here is to just get around safely as long as he doesn’t tail off or get pulled up then it’ll be fine.

I was going to back MAGIC OF LIGHT in this race.

I could be mad, because he could be heading for the Grand National as well. But I just quite like him as a horse.
