Welcome to our coverage of Day One of the 2021 Grand National Festival in Aintree There are a few big names on display today, including the two-time Champion Hurdle Air Drinker and the 2018 Native Gold Cup Champion River – but the star attraction is undoubtedly the double hero of the Grand National Tiger Roll

Unfortunately for racing fans, he won’t try to bow in a historic third national title on Saturday, but will face the Betway Bowl at 250pm today – but it’s still a joy to see the legend alive in action

Tiger Roll enters today’s race after an exceptional fifth triumph at the Cheltenham Festival, in the Cross Country Chase, which cemented its status as the most popular horse in training

After this success, our sports editor Oliver Brown shared his disappointment at the news that the Tiger will not have the chance to win their third National, writing “we cannot overestimate the importance of the Tiger Roll pairing of Red Rum would have both in the race and beyond “

He added: “The regret for the national omission of Tiger Roll is perfectly simple It is that we were denied the chance to see an icon become an immortal”

Gigginstown Stud Race Director Eddie O’Leary downplayed Tiger Roll’s chances of success in the Betway Bowl, saying he had “no chance” of winning – making the decision to rule out the National seems even more difficult to understand

Kevin Blake made his thoughts clear on ITV Racing’s opening show this morning, saying it was “too bad” that the horse is racing today rather than Saturday – and there is no doubt that the Most racing fans will feel the same

‘It’s just a shame isn’t he should run on Saturday’ – @ kevinblake2011 Did Tiger Roll’s connections make the right decision to run in the Betway Bowl? Watch LIVE: ð ???? º @ ITV4ð ???? ± https: // tco / 5RCMFZq2en # TheOpeningShow #GrandNational picTwittercom / 8kH6DkswD6

Native River also competes in the Betway Bowl, with the Clan Des Obeaux being the current 5/2 favorite for this race

Air Drinker hasn’t been the old man’s strength lately and faces a fierce battle against 10 rivals including Abacadabras and Brewin’upastorm in the Aintree Hurdle at 325h

There are seven races on the map today – four of which are Grade One – with the first race at 145h Walking is currently good to gentle
