Jockey Davy Russell is horse racing's tough guy with a soft heart

Jockey Davy Russell rode a 14-1 double at Tramore less than 24 hours after winning the Grand National on Tiger Roll.

The virtual race, which was uniquely developed to feature the 40 declared runners and riders from the 2018 Grand National field, used complex data algorithms to eventually predict Tiger Roll as the victor of the 2018 Grand National. "I can't believe it, to be honest".

However, such blows have only energised Russell to bounce back and it is ironic that Tiger Roll is owned by Ryanair chief Michael O'Leary, who delivered the biggest hit to his career five years ago. I said I didn't appreciate the first time round.

Looking back on the race itself, he said of the Davy Russell-ridden victor: "Two hundred yards out I thought we were home and hosed and we were going to hose up". This is brilliant for the whole yard, for my family at home, everyone. I'm very proud of him.
