23rd Jan 2018 3rd 14/1 – Classic Pursuit – Mick Appleby Southwell

A much better run from Mick’s horse. Original quote: “Classic Pursuit – Second runner in the race for us. Handles the track here and won well at Nottingham back in October. But as a result got hammered up the ratings – going up 28lbs for that win. AW mark is a bit lower (80), but still a bit to prove and this is also a step up significantly in class. On a plus we get in with just 8-3 and Luke rides, but going to be the hardest opposition he’s faced.”
