2018 Scottish National victor Joe Farrell clinched the final place in the line-up for the 2019 Grand National following the withdrawal of Pairofbrowneyes and he will join 39 other runners as they look to prevent Tiger Roll from making it two consecutive wins in the famous steeplechase.
Gordon Elliott’s Tiger Roll will be aiming to be the first runner since Red Rum in 1973 and 1974 to secure consecutive victories and the Irish trainer has a record thirteen horses in the final 40, that’s nearly a third of the entire field!
Visit our Grand National Runners page for full details of the final forty horses taking part in the 2019 Grand National.
The previous record for the number of Grand National runners from a single yard was when Martin Pipe saddled ten in the 2001 renewal of the race. Willie Mullins-trained Pairofbrowneyes was aimed at the 2019 Grand National but will instead be aimed at the Irish National later this month.
Should there be any subsequent withdrawals from the race, the resultant places will be taken from four reserves, these consisting of Just A Par, The Young Master, Isleofhopendreams and Exitas.
