Gordon Elliott trained dual Grand National winner Tiger Roll finished last under Keith Donoghue, behind Beacon Edge in the Ladbrokes Ireland Boyne Hurdle at Navan on Sunday, with odds drifting to 25-1 for April’s National.
Elliott said Tiger Roll will head to the Cheltenham Festival in March in The Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase: “It’s still all systems go for Cheltenham. Keith said he travelled well to the third-last, but it was horrible ground – he just got tired – he hated the ground.”
Elliott trained Fury Road, tipped by fromthehorsesmouth.info finished second, beaten a neck by Beacon Edge, and will next run in a Grade 2 at the Easter Festival at Fairyhouse.
Beacon Edge could run at Cheltenham, or in the Aintree Hurdle, with trainer Noel Meade saying: “Beacon Edge had colic at Christmas and spent nearly a week in Kildare veterinary clinic. He just wasn’t himself in Naas last time, but he’s a fair horse. He definitely stays and he’s a very nice horse.”
