Native River set for another tilt at Welsh Grand National

Native River will bid to win a second Welsh Grand National next month.

Colin Tizzard's charge carried top-weight to victory at Chepstow three years ago before winning the 2018 renewal of the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

The nine-year also placed third at Prestbury Park in 2017 and was fourth in this year's Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Owner Garth Broom says he's being prepared for a run in the Welsh National before heading to Cheltenham:

"Plan A is now looking like the Welsh National for Native River. We would like to give him a run over hurdles before, if one comes up suitable for him.

"I think the Many Clouds Chase at Aintree might come a bit too quick for him, and it is unlikely to be an option, but it hasn't been totally ruled out.

"We know he likes the track at Chepstow and can carry a big weight in the soft ground they usually get there - and it fits in nicely timing-wise if we go to the Denman Chase at Newbury afterwards."
