7th Nov 2018 1st 6/1 – Channel Packet – Mick Appleby Chelmsford

Great winner for Mick and a double on the day for them. Original quote: “Channel Packet – In great form at the moment – winning and finishing a close second from his last two starts on the turf. Back on the AW here so a bit to prove (0 from 4 on the AW) and on a 5lb higher mark than on the grass. Stays further than this 1m trip though and Mark, who claims 7lbs, gets on well with the horse so in his current mood then no reason why he can’t go better than past AW efforts. If all 8 stand their ground then fair e/w chance.”
