Welsh Grand National
The Welsh Grand National is always a great stepping stone towards the Aintree race in April falling as it does at Christmas time, the race around Chepstow is always an excellent one from a betting point of view as well as having one eye on the Aintree Grand National. In recent times we have had two Welsh National winners in Bindaree and Silver Birch who have gone onto win the Aintree race so it is an important yard stick. The trip around Chepstow is obviously shorter than Aintree but it is always a tough slog on heavy ground so any horses that stay on well should have no problem at Aintree in April.
We could potentially see a number of Grand National horses take their place at Chepstow this Christmas ensuring that it is a race to watch very closely.
