Christian Williams has high hopes of continuing a fine end to the season with Potters Corner.

The Glamorgan trainer has his eyes on a target at Auteuil next month and also has the bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown in mind for his nine-year-old, following his victory in the Midlands Grand National at Uttoxeter last month.

Conditions were testing when Potters Corner gave Williams his biggest success to date as a trainer. The ground is expected to be quicker for the final day of the jumps season, but he is keen to run.

“He’s been doing brilliant since Uttoxeter and I’m looking forward to running him,” said Williams.

“The ground won’t be ideal (at Sandown), but he’ll be confirmed and obviously we hope to run.”
