Red Rum vs Tiger Roll Betting Tips & Odds - Grand National Race of Champions 2020
Following the cancellation of the 2020 Grand National, ITV racing has confirmed that it will broadcast a virtual simulation of the race and a race of champions too, with 40 former National winners such as Red Rum and Tiger Roll. Both legends are confirmed to be entered in the race of champions and the best horse racing betting sites have priced up the duel. Can Tiger Roll get the better of Red Rum this weekend? Here's our Red Rum vs Tiger Roll betting tips, predictions and odds on the virtual Race of Champions!

Virtual Grand National Race of Champions  

In the absence of the real race, this race of legends is a step further from the usual virtual Grand National ITV have done since 2017. In years gone by, the Virtual Grand National has taken place on the Friday evening before the real-life event but this year it will take centre stage

Back-to-back champion Tiger Roll was due to try and emulate Red Rum in this year’s event only for it to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 crisis – but will now face-off against the legendary National triple-winner Red Rum in the Race of Champions, a virtual race powered by CGI (Computer Graphics Images) with ITV planning to broadcast the race.

Hence, we will see Red Rum and Tiger Roll competing with 38 other legends over the real course and famous fences.

Inspired are the company at the centre of producing the Virtual Grand National 2020, with cutting-edge CGI technology and sophisticated software used to predict the outcome of the race.

Virtual Grand National Betting 2020

Red Rum  

No horse has won the Grand National three times in a row and only Red Rum (1973, 1974 and 1977) managed three victories in the famous race. He won his first Grand National in 1973 in the most thrilling Grand National ever, when somehow beating Crisp when 30 lengths down. He defended his crown in 1974, before finishing runner-up in 1975 and 1976. He landed a historic third National in 1977.

Tiger Roll  

In 2019, Tiger Roll became the first horse since Red Rum to win back-to-back Grand Nationals. Unfortunately, he was denied a shot at the hat-trick this year. Gordon Elliott's charge recently found one too goo for him at the Cross Country Chase at the Cheltenham Festival last month. He will be hoping for far better ground in the virtual race of legends on Saturday.
