15th Jun 2018 2nd 11/2 – The Great Wall – Mick Appleby York

Perfect call from Mick and so unlucky not to win - looks a horse to follow. Original quote: "The Great Wall - Easy winner at Southwell back in December but has failed to build on that since and when running in handicaps. As a result we gave him 4 months off to freshen up and he seems well for it. Back on the turf here and even though a Class 3 race we get in with just 8-8 and weight from all the others. Should be more to come as only lightly-raced and SDS booked to ride. With 20 runners goes without saying we'll all need a bit of luck in-running but the horse has gone well fresh before and seems well at home so hopeful of a decent return run and a horse to note as the flat season moves on."
