After being rescheduled the Welsh National finally takes place today in what will be attritional going conditions- nothing new there then for this race.
I’ve always been a fan of the race since I was a young lad when the likes of Corbiere, Burrough Hill Lad, Run And Skip, Stearsby, Playschool and Bonanza Boy were winning it. I vividly remember having a bet on Fiddlers Pike, ridden by Rosemary Henderson, in it too. They were the halcyon days of NH in my eyes.
Today’s Chepstow fancies:
12.30 Chep- Subcontinent (e/w).
1.00 Chep- Scotchtown (e/w).
1.35 Chep- We Have A Dream (win).
2.05 Chep- Raz De Maree, Emperor’s Choice & Vintage Clouds (e/w).
2.45 Chep- Eminent Poet (e/w).
3.20 Chep- Grey Gold (e/w).
3.55 Chep- Good Boy Bobby (win).
Playschool wins 30 years ago.
