Potters Corner finished 14th on Saturday in the Eider Handicap Chase at Newcastle. He was in contention for the majority of the race but made a significant blunder which put paid to his chances. On the whole he jumped very well. The handicapper might just have hold of him currently at this stage of his career.
Christian Williams said today, “On the face of it, it was a disappointing run however he made a bad mistake which lost his rhythm and put him on the back foot for the remainder of the race. He’s come out of it in fine form and the plan is still to go to Cheltenham for the cross country race two weeks on Wednesday. We know he loves Cheltenham and the cross country course so fingers crossed he has a clear preparation leading upto the race and if he runs the race he did there in December he will give us a run for our money.”
