Trainer: Gordon Elliott
Form figures: 511-411
Set to go off as the shortest-priced favourite in living memory as he bids to become the first horse since Red Rum in 1974 to claim back-to-back Grand National wins.
Certainly rises to the big occasions, as he also boasts four Cheltenham Festival victories following a second successive triumph in the Cross Country Chase there this term.
What an incredible horse! The treble Cheltenham Festival winner (and reigning Grand National champ) Tiger Roll nonchalantly wins a prep race nobody thought he would!-- Racing TV (@RacingTV) February 17, 2019

Chances: Despite all that he has already achieved, Tiger Roll is still only nine years old and has every chance of landing an Aintree double.
Trainer: Willie Mullins
Form figures: BU14-1
Showed he can handle a marathon trip when gamely getting the better of Ms Parfois in last year's four-mile National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham.
Couldn't have been more impressive when landing the Bobbyjo Chase at Fairyhouse in February, a proven stepping stone towards Aintree glory, and bypassed this season's Festival to keep him fresh.
Chances: Proven stamina and a touch of class are two key ingredients when it comes to claiming this contest.
This weekend's best bets
If you're interested in football accumulators, check out our regular betting columns:
Trainer: Tony Martin
Form figures: 34-622
Didn't enjoy the smoothest of passages when a fine fourth here 12 months ago after previously staying on to finish third in the Cheltenham Gold Cup.
Returns as a major player following his fast-finishing second to Al Boum Photo at this year's Festival and has been well backed in the build-up.
Chances: Will need some luck in running as he likes to sit off the pace and then come through the pack, but will be powering home if fortune does favour the brave.
Trainer: Willie Mullins
Form figures: 0P2-00
Rallied bravely to push Tiger Roll close last year after being six lengths down at the elbow and may even have won but for a mistake two out.
Stumbled badly when tracking the leaders at Valentines second time around in 2017 before going on to finish a fair ninth, so Aintree holds no fears for this gelding.
Chances: Also has a Punchestown Festival triumph on his CV and being 11 isn't a worry, as there were three straight winners of that age between 2012 and 2014.
Ramses de Teillee
Trainer: David Pipe
Form figures: 9-5122
Few would begrudge this seven-year-old a big win after finishing second in the Welsh National and the Grand National Trial at Haydock.
A mistake four out cost him plenty of momentum at Chepstow after he was cruising at that point and he was only edged out on the run-in next time out.
Pipe said: "We were not sure if he was going to get the trip in the Welsh National, but he got it well and he ran very well at Haydock.
"While he's only seven, he's been to the Cheltenham Festival, the Welsh National and the Grand National Trial and doesn't seem to be fazed by anything."
Chances: Travels so smoothly in races that he looks an ideal type for this contest and everyone loves a flying grey! Hopefully this isn't a year too early.
Feature match previews for this weekend
If you're interested in tips on our feature matches for the weekend, check out our in-depth previews below:
One For Arthur
Trainer: Lucinda Russell
Form figures: 511/UU
Came with a smooth run to power home by four and a half lengths a couple of years ago and looked to have every chance of becoming a multiple Grand National winner at that point.
Sadly, injury problems prevented him from running all last term and this season's build-up has been hampered by jumping errors.
Chances: Memories of his 2017 success still make this Scottish raider warrant respect and Russell remains hopeful of getting him back to that form.
