Get the potential runners for Saturday's rescheduled Coral Welsh Grand National
Paul Nicholls, in line to be champion trainer for the 12th time this season, could take a major step towards that if winning the £150,000 Coral Welsh Grand National at Chepstow on Saturday when he may be represented by topweight Yala Enki and Truckers Lodge.
They were among 19 possibles for the race – rescheduled from December 27 when the track was waterlogged – revealed on Monday lunchtime.
Ante-post favourite Secret Reprieve is also in contention along with fellow leading fancies Springfield Fox, The Two Amigos, Christmas In April, Dominateur, Ramses De Teillee and Prime Venture.
Nicholls, who has won £1.35 million in prize-money this season compared to the £817,727 Dan Skelton in second place in the title race has banked, won the 1987 race on Playschool before saddling Silver Birch (2004) and L'Aventure (2005) to victory in it.
In Yala Enki, he has a smart staying handicap chaser who has finished third in the last two Welsh Nationals, while Truckers Lodge was second 12 months ago.
"Secret Reprieve has been a warm favourite for the Coral Welsh National following his trial success last month, and with the weights unchanged from the postponed running of the race, the seven-year-old remains a clear market leader to give trainer Evan Williams a home win in his country's biggest race," said Coral's David Stevens.
The marathon contest will be run in the memory of Kim Gingell, who died of cancer last year and was the daughter of Colin Tizzard, the trainer of Christmas In April.
