The Coral Welsh Grand National has not been added to Evan Williams's CV yet but that could well be readdressed at Chepstow on Sunday when Secret Reprieve and Prime Venture represent the Llancarfan trainer in the marathon test.
Secret Reprieve is currently mark leader at 4-1 and needs the declaration stage to determine his place in the line-up but boasts healthy credentials for the race after slamming The Two Amigos 12 length in the National Trial earlier in December and Prime Venture already has the battle-hardened stamp on his claims as he finished fourth in the race last year.
It looks a busy Festive season for Wiliams with the stable flagbearer Silver Streak in action in the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton and there are the likes of the impressive Star Gate waiting in the wings to ensure that Williams has ample fire power for the big Saturdays.
With 26 winners already this season and Coole Cody chipping in with a Paddy Power Gold Cup and Star Gate a Grade 2 winner it looks all guns blazing as Williams targets a Welsh National he would love to add to his collection.
Evan kindly spoke to Tony Elves of attheraces.com about his team in the Vale Of Glamorgan.
