2012 Welsh National Result
Paul Carberry produced a peach of a ride on board the Michael Scudamore-trained Monbeg Dude to land the 2012 Welsh National, as the 10/1 shot got the better of the well-backed Teaforthree in a memorable renewal of the Chepstow highlight.
AP McCoy always had Rebecca Curtis's 11/4 favourite up with the leaders and whilst many struggled to deal with the energy-sapping ground it was the market leader who looked to be going the best, but Carberry was always travelling well on Monbeg Dude as he gradually worked his way into the contest.
Challenging Teaforthree at the last fence, Carberry duly stoke up his raider and he battled clear at the home straight in a ride timed to perfection and he duly landed the spoils by half-a-length with Triggerman and Arbor Supreme completing the placings.
