BIG TIME DANCER battles gamely to get up on the line

Big Time Dancer: battled gamely to win at Leicester

BIG TIME DANCER put in a gutsy performance to get up in the final strides of the 1m2f Apprentice Handicap at Leicester yesterday.

Partnered by Ben Robinson, he was quite keen in the early part of the race before settling in mid division towards the inner. Making good headway up the inside four from home he battled gamely, with half the field in with a chance and strewn across the track, all the way to the line, getting up by the shortest of margins in a photo finish.

Winner of two on the flat last season, the four-year-old gelding by Zoffany was stepping up in trip here. It was good to soft ground here too with his previous wins both coming on ground much faster.

A good ride by Ben, a gutsy performance by Big Time Dancer and congratulations to the owners, Andy Bell, Anna Noble and Arnie Flower.
