Potters Corner wins Virtual Grand National as bookmakers donate profits to NHS coronavirus effort


Welsh Grand National winner Potter’s Corner won 2020 Virtual Grand National after an exciting substitution show.

The real Grand National having been canceled this year due to the coronavirus epidemic, the broadcaster ITV decided to project a computerized version in its place on Saturday afternoon.

Bookmakers are also involved in the fun, offering fixed odds markets for a maximum bet of £ 10 each way, with all profits donated to the NHS Charities Together.

Using CGI and a series of algorithms, the virtual contest presented versions of the horses that should have worked in the real thing, including Tiger Roll, who would have bid for an unprecedented hat-trick and was returned on 5 / 1. favorite.

Under a CGI Davy Russell, he led in the middle of the race, but the Aso-rank outsider only galloped to fall when he led twice.

Instead, Potter’s Corner crossed and practically stopped the ramp-up of Walk In The Mill, with 10/1 second favorite Any Second Now in third and Tiger Roll in fourth. Burrows Saint, under a virtual Rachael Blackmore, finished fifth.
