Haydock winner Sydney Paget heads Coral Welsh National betting

The recent Haydock winner Sydney Paget heads the sponsor’s betting for next month’s Coral Welsh National at 10-1, after the weights were released for the Chepstow showpiece today. Highland Lodge and the Irish-trained Goonyella (from 16-1) are the 12-1 joint second favourites, with Merry King and Nuts N Bolts among the group quoted at 14-1.

“Sydney Paget was a 20-1 shot prior to his win at Haydock at the weekend, but went to the head of the betting as a result of that success, and even a 13lb hike in the ratings might not prevent him following up at Chepstow given the high regard trainer Donald McCain has for his charge,” said Coral’s David Stevens.

“Goonyella has been the main market mover today, his trainer Jim Dreaper became the first Irish based handler to win the Coral Welsh National with Notre Pere five years ago, and Goonyella is another who should relish the stamina test this race provides,” added Stevens.
