A hugely talented individual who showed himself to be a smart novice chaser last season with a pair of wins at Kelso, including when taking the valuable Ivan Straker Memorial Chase by 4½ lengths from Shantou Flyer, a horse who went on to finish runner-up at the Cheltenham Festival next time out. A creditable second under a big weight at Uttoxeter on his final outing of the campaign, Big River is set to be plying his trade in some of the big handicap chases through the winter months.
