Potters Corner Cheltenham Review

Potters Corner finished 7th of 16 in the Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase yesterday at the Cheltenham Festival.

The rain poured all day with the going turning extremely testing. Potters was up in the front line for the majority of the race jostling for position next to Tiger Roll.

He traveled very well for much of the race and ran his heart out. With this race being a conditions race, he effectively had 25 pounds to find on ratings against the likes of Tiger Roll and eventual winner Delta Work. He gave us all a huge performance and we couldn't be more proud. As always when he runs around Cheltenham, he gives his all which is all that can be asked.

He seems absolutely fine this morning and a decision will be made to future plans in the next week or so. He will either now go on his holidays or look at the banks race at the Punchestown Festival next month which is their equivalent to the Cheltenham cross country race.

Christian will closely monitor him and make a decision but as always the horse will come first. At this stage there are no plans for retirement and as we saw yesterday he still loves the game, racing with great enthusiasm.

Thank you all for your continued support.
