Before the race, much attention had been focused on the three female jockeys who were hoping to make history by becoming the first to win the world's most famous steeplechase.

Eleven years on from saddling Silver Birch to win the Aintree spectacular, the Irish trainer struck gold for a second time as three-times Cheltenham Festival victor Tiger Roll clung on grimly in the hands of Davy Russell.

Jumping efficiently just behind the leaders, the recent Cheltenham Festival victor traded at a high of [17.0] in-running before making steady progress in the closing stages.

The smallest horse in the field held off a late surge from Pleasant Company in one of the closest ever finishes in the historic race, which was watched by an estimated global television audience of 600 million.

The runner-up - trained by Elliott's main rival in Ireland Willie Mullins - hit a low of [2.2] in the closing stages but the finishing post came just too soon for the 10-year-old as he went down by just a head.

Anibale Fly finished fourth, making it a 1-2-3-4 for Irish runners. "I'm definitely going to appreciate it now". "But then I thought "well, Davy's 38 - he hasn't got many left in him". That's racing and I'm very lucky that I won it two years ago.

"The only time I enjoyed cleaning up the grass when dad cut it was around this time of the year, because I could build my own national fences out of the grass", a jubilant Russell told ITV afterwards.

The eventual victor saw off a late charge by the Willie Mullins' trained Pleasant Company to secure victory and a heroes welcome home in Summerhill, Co Meath. I was actually fighting with Michael O'Leary, saying that when he retires he's to keep him at home at Gigginstown, and he said, no, he's not good enough, so he'd better keep him now!

"He's so driven and determined, he started out taking horses to places like Ayr and Perth, winning little races, and look where he is now".

Following an exclusive long term partnership with Carm Productions and The Jockey Club, Inspired's Virtual Grand National 2018 was broadcast for the first time on national television in the United Kingdom on Friday evening ahead of the live event on Saturday afternoon.
