Fella ready for George debut25th October 2012
Tom George is looking forward to getting Big Fella Thanks back on the track in the Betfred Mobile Sports Veterans' Handicap Chase at Aintree on Saturday.
The 10-year-old has not raced since finishing seventh to Ballabriggs in the Grand National in April 2011, when he was with Ferdy Murphy. He had also filled sixth and fourth places in the 2009 and 2010 renewals of the world's most famous steeplechase under the supervision of champion trainer Paul Nicholls.
Aintree again will figure in George's plans for the gelding, with the Betfred Becher Chase over the famous fences on December 8 an objective.
