Big Time burst into calculations for next week’s Group One Spring Champion Stakes with a commanding frontrunning performance to win Saturday’s Dulcify Handicap at Rosehill.

Trainer John O’Shea wouldn’t commit to a start in the Spring Champion but the three-year-old gelding put forward a compelling case to consider heading that way with the dominance of his victory.

The son of Danewin led the field and was full of running as he turned for home in the 1900m Listed event, going on to score by 3-1/4 lengths over stablemate Quackquack with Induna third.

Big Time scored over 1600m at Warwick Farm last Sunday and was having his second start in six days.

Should he head to the Spring Champion (2000m) it would be his third race in the space of two weeks.

“We’ll just wait and see how he pulls up,” O’Shea said.

“I’ll have to speak to the team, they’ll have some input but I’ve got to say the racing doesn’t seem to be hurting him.”

Big Time only made his debut at Kembla last month and O’Shea said the gelding had always shown promise and continued to improve as his distances increased.

“He’s just been a horse we’ve had a nice opinion of his whole career, we’ve brought him along steadily and as soon as he got up to distances that suited him he’s been effective,” O’Shea said.

Christian Reith has been on Big Time in both his victories but said he knew long before then that Big Time was a horse on the rise.

“I’ve had a good opinion of him from the first time I rode him, even before his trials,” Reith said.

“He gives you such a lovely feel and I knew he was going to make a horse. He gets over the ground so easily, he just floats. He’s very laid-back, very relaxed and just takes it as it comes.”

O’Shea was also pleased with the performance of Starcraft filly Quackquack who beat all but her stablemate after racing in a Kembla maiden last Saturday.
