The lorry left for Cheltenham this morning driven by Jaimie with Hannah beside her. Both Big River and Mighty Thunder had a canter before they went and a ten minute session on the water treadmill.
Big River runs in the Ultima tomorrow, a race he was fourth in last year. His preparation then had been interrupted and this year we have been much happier with him. He also arrives on the back of a win at Kelso in January and with soft ground and rain tonight he looks great each way value.
