Trainer Christian Williams reports POTTERS CORNER, winner of the Midlands and Welsh Grand Nationals, to be in good form following his run over hurdles in a Pertemps qualifier at Warwick this month and will now send the 11-year-old to contest the Glenfarclas Chase over the cross-country fences at the Cheltenham Festival as his prep race for the Randox Health Grand National. “Warwick would be a sharp-enough track for him, and he’s got a career-high mark over hurdles and is an 11-year-old, so he probably had it all to do,” said the Bridgend trainer. “We were very pleased. He ran well until turning in. It was a nice positive run. He’ll go straight to the cross-country race at Cheltenham, I’d have thought. That will be his prep for the National.” Potters Corner tackled the cross-country course at Cheltenham for the first time in November, finishing third to Kingswell Theatre.
