TODAY’S HIGHLIGHTED RUNNER
“He ran well on Saturday but just missed the break and no matter what we do, he seems to come out steady. Six-furlongs gives him a little bit more of a chance to get into it. He ran very well finishing second and he could have probably won. If he takes to the quick race which sprinters can normally do, then he must have every chance. He seems fresh and well.”William Muir

He was always a bit of an underachiever before he won and he’s taken a hike of 6lb for that. If the race falls right for him then he’s in there with a reasonable shout.

Last time out he was slow away and finished his race really well. Steps up in trip today to 1m 2f which I think will suit him and I hope he can break better out of stall 7. I think he is a horse that is improving with each run.
Firestep is a lovely big horse but I am not sure this is the ideal track for a horse of his size and it looks as if there might be some quite smart horses in here but he does work well.
