McCreery's Big Heart Gets Him Home

By Brad Gray

McCreery kicked off his autumn campaign with a sweeping win at Randwick chasing down tearaway leader Chetwood in the Group Three Liverpool City Cup (1300m).

“He gave them a big start but there was pace on. He is a good tough little horse,” said Chris Waller “He is the smallest horse in the stable but has close to the biggest heart.”

McCreery coasted through the wet

The five-year-old tips the scales at just 417kg but it hasn’t stopped him building the imposing record of six wins from 14 starts.

McCreery was allotted 51kg for the Doncaster Mile which remains his target over The Championships. “He is a genuine Group Two horse and we’ve got to ensure he is not an unlucky Group One horse,” Waller said earlier in the week.

Hugh Bowman wasn’t confident in the run, spotting Chetwood a huge start but the British import ended up doing it comfortably on the line.

“At the half way point I thought he (Chetwood) was too far in front, he can’t keep going like that,” said Bowman.

“I was further back than I wanted to be but he sort of needed to be to have him travelling and that he did. He travelled and let down well.”
