2011 Welsh National Result
Le Beau Bai was a superb winner of the 2011 Welsh National as the dour stayer stormed clear of the gutsy Giles Cross in the closing stages to take the marathon prize and propel himself into a potential Grand National candidate.
Travelling well from the outset, Richard Lee's raider overtook Giles Cross with two fences to go and Charlie Poste duly kicked him clear to win by seven lengths, with Victor Dartnall's second place raider beating Cappa Bleu by 15 lengths.
