Christian Williams said this evening,

"Potters Corner is in very good form at home. I gave him an easy time of things after his run in the Welsh Grand National to freshen him up. I think we can put a line through that run as he was coming into it on the back of running his heart out at Cheltenham and it was a real war attrition on bottomless ground at Chepstow when most of the field pulled up.

I've put Ellis Collier on him tomorrow who is my conditional jockey and takes off a valuable seven pounds. Potters is a straight forward ride so I'm sure will give Ellis a great spin. Ideally we'd have liked a bit more juice in the ground tomorrow but it'll be nice ground. The trip we know is fine for him and he's about the only horse in the race who is proven over this marathon distance.

I'm hopeful of a big run tomorrow hence his declaration. All being well he'll come out of the race well and can head to Cheltenham for the cross country."

Potters Corner is around 18/1 and it is advised to have a small each way bet.
