Co-favourites for Coral Welsh Grand National as entries are unveiled

| 16.11.2016

Minella Rocco, Native River and Viconte Du Noyer are the sponsor’s 14-1 co-favourites for next month’s Coral Welsh Grand National, after the entries for Wales’s biggest race were unveiled today.  Two time winner Mountainous is among the runners quoted at 16-1, while there is a £100,000 bonus on offer should the Chepstow winner go on to win the Coral Scottish Grand National at Ayr next April.

“The entries for this year’s Coral Welsh Grand National are strong both numerically and in terms of quality, with the market headed by a Cheltenham Festival winner in Minella Rocco, and two classy staying chasers from the in-form Colin Tizzard team, Native River and Viconte du Noyer.  Once again we are offering a bonus of £100,000 should the Chepstow winner go on to victory in the Coral Scottish Grand National at Ayr in April,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
