April 4 (Reuters) - Potter's Corner won the computer-simulated 'virtual' version of the Grand National after the annual steeplechase at Aintree, Liverpool was cancelled due to the coronavirus.

The Welsh-trained horse, ridden by Jack Tudor, was an 18-1 shot and held off Walk in the Mill and Any Second Now.

Tiger Roll, the winner of the last two actual Grand National races and the 5-1 favourite, finished fourth.
