Potters Corner non runner Punchestown

The decision has been made to withdraw Potters Corner from his intended engagement at Punchestown this afternoon.

His trainer Christian Williams said;

"I've had a good think and looking back at Potters' run on Thursday and despite knowing how difficult it is to win first time around such a specialist track and discipline as shown with the favourite finishing just in front of us, the best option is probably not to participate. I personally enjoy watching him race around these unique cross country races but I think on this occasion after a long season, the safest option is to not participate. 

He is absolutely fine after his run on Thursday and is enjoying his time staying at Ted Walsh's yard whilst in Ireland.

We'll get him home, give him a nice holiday and we'll all get together and make a decision on next season when the time is right."
