10 April 2021: The big day has arrived for Potters Corner!
Welcome to being part of the 2021 Randox Grand National. Race time 5.15pm.
Christian Williams reports Potters Corner to be “absolutely bouncing” ahead of today’s race. He has worked very well in the last ten days having an away day at Ffos Las and then schooling over Grand National style fences at David Pipe’s yard earlier this week. Christian has put the blinkers on him for the first time today to try and get absolutely everything out of him and he reports he’s worked extremely well at home in them. Ideally, he might have wanted a bit more rain, but the going was described by Jack Tudor who takes the ride as “like a carpet” after finishing second in the Topham over the Grand National fences yesterday. Potters Corner has the ideal profile for the race and this has been his target all year. Hopefully he can go one step better and win the real thing today after winning the virtual Grand National in 2020. He is currently around 22/1 this morning which is a very fair price.
Here’s to a great day ahead.
