15th Jul 2017 2nd 7/1 – Big Country – Mick Appleby York

Another top run in a decent handicap from this improving horse. Original quote: “Big Country – Been a busy horse of late, but has taken his racing well. Ran well for much of the way last week in the Old Newton Cup. That was over 1m4f so this drop back in trip is a plus and we take off 7lbs this time with Raymond’s claim. Super tough race, but looks well-handicapped and returns to the scene of his course and distance win here 2 starts ago. Draw 4 probably not ideal, but if getting the luck in-running the hoping for a decent effort.”
