20/8/2017- In a gallant and epic battle down the straight on a heavy track at Ballarat, Wells won his third Grand National Steeplechase.
He equalled the record held by Bashboy whom Wells actually beat in his first victory in the Grand National when it was held at Sandown.
He was given a lovely ride by Richard Cully and hit the lead in the straight, he was headed by Over The Yard Arm but showed his courage and tenacity with his will to win and fought back to win by a head.
He carried top weight of 71.5kg’s and gave the runner up 7 kilo’s. It was an incredible effort from a wonderful, honest and brave horse.
