Welsh National 2011

As always, particularly competitive but Richard Lee's Le Beau Bai catches the eye at the right end of the handicap. He's not the biggest of individuals but the heavy going should prove right up his street. Third in the 2009 running off a mark of 148, he goes here off 127 having won over the course at the beginning of the month; the yard had a welcome winner with 13 year old Victory Gunner earlier today. Suggestion: Le Beau Bai each-way (10/1 Betfred).

What looked a competitive renewal on paper was turned into a two horse race by Giles Cross, second in this last year, and eventual winner Le Beau Bai (10/1). Charlie Poste rode a fine race on the winner as Giles Cross appeared to be travelling much the better turning for home and was sent on by Denis O'Reagan four out. His mount started to tire coming to the penultimate fence and Le Beau Bai stayed on better to win seven lengths.
