Running his first race at Market Rasen, Tiger Roll won the 1sts Security Solutions Juvenile Hurdle. It was at this point that Gordon Elliott started training Tiger Roll, prompting wins in the JCB Triumph Hurdle and the Masterson Holdings Hurdle at Cheltenham, finishing second in the Gala Retail Spring Juvenile Hurdle at Leopardstown, and poorly finishing seventh in the AES Champion Four-Year-Old Hurdle at Leopardstown. The following nine races ended in defeat, pulling up at the WKD Hurdle at Down Royal, before failing to win at Gowran Park, Cheltenham, Punchestown, Dundalk, Aintree, and pulling up again at Punchestown.
A stronger record came midway through 2016, where Tiger Roll won the McHale Fusion 3 Plus Beginners Chase at Ballinrobe and the Midlands National Ladies Day July 15th Novice Chase at Kilbeggan. Tiger Roll ran a further eight races in 2016, winning the JT McNamara Ladbrokes Munster National Handicap Chase at Limerick, and resulting second in the Killarney Oaks Hotel Novice Chase at Killarney, the Ballybrit Novice Chase at Galway, and the Allman Contracts Ltd Novice Chase at Listowel.
2018 started with an incredible win in the JT McNamara National Hunt Challenge Cup Amateur Riders’ Novices’ Chase despite possessing a starting price of 16/1. There wasn’t as much luck in attempting to show dominance at Wexford, Clonmell, or even in the next appearance at Cheltenham Racecourse in December but returning to Cheltenham Festival in 2018 saw another win, this time in the Glenfarclas Chase. It proved to be Tiger Roll’s year, as he went on to win the coveted Aintree Grand National, recording his best achievement to date. The Cheltenham November Meeting featured Tiger Roll, but he could only reach fourth in the Glenfarclas Cross Country Handicap Chase.
