Wetherby to provide next test for Big Breakaway

Assistant trainer Joe Tizzard says the William Hill Towton Novices’ Chase at Wetherby is the next goal for Big Breakaway.

The talented six-year-old is continuing his preparations ahead of the Cheltenham Festival, and now the Wetherby meeting on February 6 has been set as the next target.

Tizzard feels Big Breakaway will do better amongst stiff competition and feels the Towton Novices’ Chase will provide the ideal preparation ahead of Prestbury Park.

“The plan at the moment is to take The Big Breakaway to Wetherby next month for the Towton,” Tizzard said.

“He has only had three runs over fences and this is a Grade Two which is quite good timing-wise before the Festival.

“We can’t drop him back and do what we did at Exeter as we have got to take him to a decent enough race where he will get a tow along.”
