Fakenham Double Fire Away wins again

QUOTES: FIRE AWAY had some very good form in Ireland and when he won there the second horse is now rated nearly 140. He’s a nice horse, so we’ll have a sit down and see how he is before making a plan but he was fairly pulling Adam’s arms out there today. It’s a track that really wouldn’t suit him but we had to come here and it’s really good prize-money as well. I’m absolutely delighted with him winning this and I think what’s happened today just shows he’s a good horse and a nice horse for us to look forward to. He’s still a novice over hurdles too, so that’s another route we can look to go down.

FIRE AWAY was getting plenty of weight all round and that proved crucial as he followed up his recent Musselburgh romp when he returned an impressive RPR of 127. Taken wide throughout here, he travelled superbly but was put under severe pressure by the runner-up from after two out and needed every yard to put the race to bed. Both he and the second made mistakes the last, but he was just that bit quicker away, which ultimately made the difference. Now 2-2 for this yard, he's clearly well ahead of his current mark and should go in again. He's still a over hurdles and it's possible connections will explore that route too.
