Welsh National Form
Assessing the form of the Coral Welsh National can be very tricky as the race comes quite early in the season. Not all the leading contenders in the race have been seen yet this season which it makes this race notoriously difficult to call but as always there are some pointers to take into account.
There are many novices in the race where it is impossible to say whether they will be able to negotiate the fences and stay the long trip on likely soft ground. As and when we start to get confirmation of potential runners for the race at Chepstow we will have all of their form available for punters to study.
Welsh National Form Considerations
1. Consider all entries that have run over the Chepstow Racecourse as it is a very undulating course and this does not suit many horses as a lot of horses will only show their best form on flat tracks.
2. Consider all horses that have run in the Welsh National the year before especially those who performed well.
3. Make sure you look at horses that love the soft ground.
4. It is best if your selection has had one outing in the build up to the race as race fitness is key.
With these pointers in mind we suggest you now review our form profile for the main contenders and this will be available in the days leading up to the race. See current Welsh National Odds here.
