Muswellbrook trainer Todd Howlett admits he’s not the best at promoting himself, so he’s hoping Two Big Fari can make a Kosciuszko statement when he returns at Grafton on Thursday.
The four-year-old has won five of his eight starts, and been unplaced only once when a valiant fifth in the Country Championships final in April. Howlett still sees plenty of upside in the horse.
So if he’s going to be a contender for the $1.3m The Kosciuszko in October then Two Big Fari looks very well placed in the Village Green Hotel Country Magic Association Plate (1200m), which is a set weights Class 6 for country-trained horses.
“We don’t know what his level is yet, that’s the hard thing, I’d like to think he is a Kosciuszko horse,’’ Howlett said.
