Tom Queally gave Big Orange a fine ride
Tom Queally gave Big Orange a superb front-running ride to take the Win £10,000,000 on Betdaq Colossus Chester Stakes on the Roodee.
Michael Bell's gelding was the only three-year-old in the race, but off bottom weight he was allowed to bowl along in front and given a soft lead.
Whiplash Willie, who was giving the winner 18lb, came with a threatening-looking run in the short straight but Big Orange (5-1) showed no signs of stopping and was still a length and a quarter ahead at the line to lift this Listed Handicap.
De Rigueur was a further five lengths away in third.
