native-river-capture Native River followed up is Hennessy Gold Cup win 31 days later to secure the Coral Welsh National with Johnson describing his performance as “Phenomenal” after the flashy chestnut carried top weight on soft ground to deny his closet rival by 1¾ length’s. Johnson believes this victory strengthens his claims to be in the mix for the 2017 running of the Cheltenham Gold Cup in March as he is improving with every run this season. This could also mean the potential of a 1st, 2nd and 3rd for his Trainer Colin Tizzard if stable mates Cue Card and Thistlecrack all line up.
