Fire Away Cruises to Worcester win

QUOTES: This was always the plan to come here and then go to the Summer Plate at Market Rasen. FIRE AWAY is a better chaser than he is hurdler, but this was to bring him on as he’s still a novice over hurdles. We’re ready for two weeks time now. He’ll have a great chance, he only ever does enough as much he wants to do. He was idling in front today but he still won impressively. The two horses that beaten him are both Nicky Henderson’s and probably Graded-level horses – Laura Morgan, trainer.

FIRE AWAY could be called the winner from a fair way out having travelled strongly, and despite idling on the run-in, ran out a convincing winner. He has been in cracking form since landing a gamble in February and added a fifth success now reverting to hurdles, a first in this sphere. Although he'll be racing off a career-high mark when returned to fences for the Summer Plate at Market Rasen later in the month, he can go there with a decent chance.
