What Happened in 2022?

We had a thrilling finish, and almost the perfect career ending for Tiger Roll in the 2022 Cross Country Chase, but sadly it wasn’t to be.

The 12-year-old was running in his last race, looking for his sixth Cheltenham Festival win, but went down by three quarters of a length, to stablemate Delta Work. It was a brave effort from Tiger Roll, who bowed out from the sport as a legend, and a great performance from Delta Work, who really impressed over this course.
