    I had a wee each way bet on Tiger - he ran a great race. I was also pleased that See you at midnight finished, shame he tired at the end. Hope fallen horses and jockeys all ok.

    I think Saint Are hurt himself running (and falling) when loose at the 1st fence second circuit. I do hope he is ok though.
    I'm thrilled Milansbar and Bryony finished 5th, they had such a lovely ride.

    I thought he did get up and gallop off. I hope he is OK.
    Briony Frost is just great, horses love her and the way she speaks about them you can see how she fills them with such confidence.
    We are in for a gallop, away, away,

    Hope all horses and jockeys are well.
    I read on the Racing Post report that Tiger Roll is 15.2

    So pleased to read that Saint Are has gone home after a good night at Aintree, thank goodness for our top class vets. He was brought down but continued riderless until falling further on.
    "Hello lad, shall we clean you up and go for a hack/schooling session/jump?"
    "Hmmmph, Where's the carrots?"
    PS can I join the Pony Squashers?!

    An update from Tom George in RP. Saint Are ("Arnie") has been out in his paddock, and has now been retired by his owners. Will spend a summer in the field before a decision is made on any new career.

    Great to see ITV have not only wished both Cue card and Saint Are happy retirements, they showed Saint Are trotting around at home. They then went on to detail the reasons the green screens are used, for the benefit of the general public who don’t always appreciate that they provide privacy ( eg jockey at Bechers) and a calming effect on a potentially panicked horse.
