A strong robust type who showed an excellent attitude and plenty of ability when second on is debut in his irish point to point. He achieved a rating of 89+ in a race that was the fastest time of the day.
Big River is by Milan the St Leger winner who stamps his horses with genuine attitudes and robust conformation.
His dam was a bumper winner and a full sister to Listed chase winner Give Over, second in the Irish National and the J Nicholson Wine Merchant Chamion Chase at Down Royal. Big River's full brother has won a bumper, over hurdles and three chases. Further back in the family are stayers Miss Nero, Amaretto Rose, Southern Star and Mr Maguire.
Everything about Big River makes me think that he should be a decent stayer over fences, but before that he should be successful in bumpers and hurdles. Big River fulfilled our belief when following up a second placing on his bumper debut with a win at Kelso in April. He will be schooled over hurdles for the 2015/16 season.
