Authorized Art He's a nice sort to look forward to. He's still a colt so I'm not sure whether we will look for another race or geld him. I'll see if there is a race for him in France, otherwise he could go to Galway or somewhere like that. He was still very green considering he had a run (over hurdles) in France. Even when he met hurdles wrong he had the scope to take off wherever he wanted to.

Tiger Roll Everyone knows it’s been a rough week. Horses haven’t been running up to par, a few of them haven’t been good enough and things haven’t been working. We’re lucky enough that we’ve got a good bunch of owners and a good bunch of horses. We’ll keep smiling and keep kicking. This horse has won at four Cheltenham Festivals now and a Grand National. He’s our first winner of the week and I won’t forget him. In his last run in the Boyne Hurdle he looked as good as he ever was and today he was brilliant. I’m very lucky to have him. You win the Grand National by accident and we’ve won it twice. It’s a big ask for this horse to do it again, but what he has done there today has been brilliant and we’ll enjoy it. To win at four Cheltenham Festivals is class.

Tiger Roll that's brilliant, I'm delighted with the way he ran. He's a great horse and he never lets us down. The plan is the cross-country race at Cheltenham and obviously the English National all being well. It was a nice surprise. I thought the two horses, Bless The Wings (which finished last) and him, would finish second last and last so it was a nice surprise. He's paid for himself for the year again. That's arguably one of his best performances over hurdles. I thought he would need the run badly, and we knew there was plenty of improvement in him, but he was obviously a bit fitter than I thought. Keith said he would come on from the run. He's going to be some horse to go for the cross-country race now and he should taking a fair bit of beating with a clear round.
