Potters Corner recorded a famous success in the Welsh Grand National at Chepstow for Glamorgan trainer Christian Williams.
Ridden by 7lb claimer Jack Tudor, the nine-year-old – part-owned by Wales rugby union international Jonathan Davies – relished the stamina-sapping three and three-quarter miles to register a fourth course triumph, as well as add to his victory in the Midlands National at Uttoxeter in March.
Yala Enki and Two Amigos were always to the fore, but Potters Corner was on their heels throughout, while last year’s winner Elegant Escape crept into the race on the final circuit.
Potters Corner (8-1) nosed into the lead three fences from home and kept on resolutely to land the coveted spoils by a length and three-quarters from Truckers Lodge, whose Paul Nicholls-trained stablemate Yala Enki was a length away in third. Prime Venture was fourth, with Two Amigos fifth and Elegant Escape sixth.
