Welsh Grand National Betting Odds Comparison - Chepstow

27/12/2021 14:50:00

The Welsh Grand National is one of the National Hunt feature races of the festive period, with the 2020 renewal taking place on Sunday 27 December and we’re going to see some talented chasers taking on a daunting course which spans nearly four miles at Chepstow Racecourse.

The Welsh National racecard always throws up a competitive looking race and the great news is that we’re likely to be able to back any horse at a double figure price, with this often coming down to which runner has the best stamina to last over two circuits.

Potters Corner and Yala Enki Head the Betting

While the racecard and the betting market will take shape as we get closer to the start of the race, it appears as though Potters Corner is a likely runner and the ten-year-old was recently seen running a decent race in the Cross Country Chase at the November Cheltenham meeting, with the Christian Williams-trained charge finishing in third place.

That run was much needed considering the horse hadn’t been seen at the track for nearly a year, with Williams hoping that Potters Corner comes on for that run and we should remember that the horse won last year’s Welsh National after going off a mark of 10-4, with the runner touching off Truckers Lodge and Yala Enki.

Yala Enki could also return to Chepstow Racecourse for another bite of the cherry and there wasn’t a huge gap between the horse and the winner of the Welsh National a year ago, with the Paul Nicholls runner capable of finishing in the frame again after such a creditable run on heavy ground.

Indeed, the ten-year-old showed plenty of class when finishing second in the recent Planteur At Chapel Stud Handicap Chase at Cheltenham Racecourse over three miles and three furlongs, with the runner only getting touched off by a short head.

Ramses De Teillee was the winner of that particular race and has therefore announced his credentials to run a big race at Chepstow, with the David Pipe-trained horse impressing in that Cheltenham race despite some erratic jumping and perhaps a smoother completion of obstacles could see him oblige by a bigger margin.

The History of the Welsh Grand National

It’s fair to say that this is the biggest horse race that takes place in Wales, with Chepstow Racecourse hosting this event since 1949 and it always has pride of place on 27 December which makes it a festive race fixture for racegoers looking to enjoy some spectacles during their holiday.

Potters Corner, Raz De Maree and Elegant Escape are among the most recent winners on the Welsh National race card, although Native River was a high profile victor in 2016 and the Welsh horse then went on to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 2018.

The race was first inaugurated in 1895 and therefore has a long and proud history, with the race first taking place at Ely Racecourse in Cardiff, with the course closing shortly before the Second World War and it shortly afterwards moved to Chepstow.
