Mick Appleby – Faithful Creek 2nd Feb 2017 1st 6/4 – Southwell

Nice call from Mick – he told us it was his best chance on the day. Original quote: “Faithful Creek – Been knocking on the door of late so every chance again over this trip. Only beaten 1 1/2 lengths last time despite coming 5th, but a pound lower here and no reason why he won’t handle the surface (trying it for the first time) as he’s gone well with cut on the turf. Well-handicapped now too and so if coping with the fibresand looks to have a decent chance and probably my best on the day with Serenity Now the main danger.”
