Big Buck’s aims to extend run

HORSE RACING: Big Buck’s will face seven rivals in the BGC Liverpool Hurdle at Aintree on Thursday as he goes for a 17th consecutive win. Owner Andy Stewart is confident that his fine form will continue, insisting his charge is in top shape. He said: “Obviously he had a race at Cheltenham [the World Hurdle], as they all did, but there have been no problems at all.”
