Ms Parfois camp eye 2018 Welsh National

21st December 2017, 12:48 by Jack Ogalbe

Ms Parfois' trainer Anthony Honeybell says the 2018 Welsh National could be an option following her impressive showing at Cheltenham.

The six-year-old won twice from five starts over hurdles and, after placing well on her chasing debut at Uttoxeter, broke her duck on Friday at Prestbury Park.

She backed it up on Wednesday with a win at Newbury and seems to be enjoying a budding partnership with Noel Fehily.

A Listed race at Leicester in January is her next goal, with Honeybell's ultimate target a go at the traditional Chepstow feature on December 27 next year.

Considering future targets, the trainer added: "The first race that comes to mind is a mares' chase at Leicester on January 23. I don't think she'll run before then.

"We'll probably stick to the mares' races this year and then next year I can see her running in races like the Peter Marsh at Haydock, and I might even give her an entry in the Welsh National."
