Verdict
POTTERS CORNER has a good young conditional jockey in the saddle and he can make his first start over fences this campaign a winning one with victory in a competitive renewal of the Welsh Grand National. Second place can go the way of last years winner Elegant Escape who has run well on both previous starts this season while third place can go to West Approach, who filled the same position at Cheltenham in a competitive affair earlier this month.
