Chepstow is set to welcome back fans for the biggest race of the year in Wales for the first time since 2019.

Secret Reprieve and Iwilldoit scored in front of an empty grandstand at the Monmouthshire track in 2020 and 2021 respectively due to coronavirus restrictions in the UK.


A bumper prize pot worth £150,000 is up for grabs and plenty of runners are expected to take their chance to add their name to the illustrious honours list which includes subsequent Gold Cup winners Synchronised and Native River.

Welsh Grand National 2022 betting

Welsh Grand National odds are on paddypower.com and prices for the leading contenders can be seen on our snazzy widgets below.

Venetia Williams’ Quick Wave has emerged as the favourite after storming to victory in the London National at Sandown earlier this month and is officially 9lbs well in at the weights.

The Galloping Bear – first past the post in last season’s Grand National Trial before being disqualified – is next in the betting and has plenty of form in the book over marathon trips with wins in his other chase starts.

Munster National and Troytown scorer The Big Dog is also prominent in our market with the nine-year-old gelding seeking a third big win on the spin.
