has plainly returned a much-improved performer as he followed in the footsteps of Secret Reprieve last season in winning this race following success in the Trial at the start of the month, looking a seasoned campaigner - on just his fourth run over fences - with the way he went through the race en route to a fairly ready success; hampered start, soon in touch, travelled well, not fluent third but jumped soundly in main, went prominent sixteenth, jumped on next, pressed on 5 out, asserted 3 out, just kept up to work; he's going forward so quickly that he'll be of firm interest for other big staying prizes this winter/spring.

showed no ill-effects from his winning reappearance at Sandown, confirming himself a smart stayer as he found only a more progressive and even less-exposed chaser too good; close up, lost ground briefly end of back straight, chased leader 5 out, shaken up next, held by winner from 3 out but kept on and quite comfortably on top of rest.

hadn't been seen since winning this race nearly 12 months earlier, a dry autumn preventing a prep run after he'd missed the cut for the Grand National by one, and that preparation counted against him in such a demanding race, albeit not before he shaped as if still very much of interest from this mark; hampered start, patiently ridden, mistake third, crept closer eighteenth, in contention briefly 5 out, left behind soon after; remains capable of better.

All 20 ran. Fences: 23.

Winning Owner: Diamond Racing Ltd

Time: 8m 28.8s Closing Sectional: (2.55f): 44.80s (94.7%)

Overrounds: Industry SP 126%, Betfair SP 98.7%

Fitness and stamina were tested to the full in a Welsh National that saw only a quarter of the field complete, a pair of improving stayers separating themselves from the fifth last after 7 had broken clear into the straight; only the Tizzard pair Native River and Elegant Escape - 2 of 4 previous winners lining up again - carried more than 10-10 in a lopsided handicap, the winner one of 7 forced to race from out of the weights; not for the first time in this race, a ragged start compromised several.

IWILLDOIT has plainly returned a much-improved performer as he followed in the footsteps of Secret Reprieve last season in winning this race following success in the Trial at the start of the month, looking a seasoned campaigner - on just his fourth run over fences - with the way he went through the race en route to a fairly ready success; hampered start, soon in touch, travelled well, not fluent third but jumped soundly in main, went prominent sixteenth, jumped on next, pressed on 5 out, asserted 3 out, just kept up to work; he's going forward so quickly that he'll be of firm interest for other big staying prizes this winter/spring.

ACHILLE (FR) again ran well for a long way; hampered start, patiently ridden, went handy out wide early final circuit, one paced from 5 out; he's rising 12 but has yet to try the calmer waters of veterans company.
