Glorious day for Irish trainer Gordon Elliott
Following on from the earlier victories of Labaik and Apple’s Jade, Gordon Elliott completed a famous Cheltenham treble with Tiger Roll in the JT McNamara National Hunt Chase.
Winner of the Triumph Hurdle over two miles in 2014, the Gigginstown House Stud-owned gelding was sent off at 16-1 for this four-mile test.
The seven-year-old was pulling rider Lisa O'Neill's arms out running down the hill and picked up from the home turn for a ready three-length success.
Missed Approach was second ahead of Haymount in third.
O'Neill said: "It's surreal, to be honest. It's an overwhelming feeling.
"I was just hoping up the hill that there was nothing there to pass me.
"It's a good team effort and it's absolutely brilliant."
Elliott said of the jockey: "She's decent and is an absolute star.
"She pre-trains our horses and does everything for us.
"She's an absolute star and I'm delighted for her."
