TRAINER GORDON ELLIOTT has revealed that two-time Grand National winner Tiger Roll will definitely take part in the Cheltenham Festival later this year.

Tiger Roll underwent a procedure in mid-November to have a small chip in a joint removed and is recovering well, according to Elliott. 

“Tiger Roll is in great nick and he is back cantering away. I’ve been very happy with him and with the way he has progressed over the last few weeks,” Elliott told the Racing Post

The legendary 10-year-old’s progress will be monitored over the coming weeks before a return date is decided on. The Boyne Hurdle at Navan on 16 February has been mooted as a potential comeback date.

“It is hard to know whether he will make the Boyne Hurdle at Navan.,” said Elliott.

“He could be back in time for it, you never know, but we will see how the next few weeks go. He will definitely make Cheltenham, that’s for sure. He’s very well at the moment and I couldn’t be happier with him.”
