Steps up! When Boragh Steps scored over 6f here three weeks back, he beat winners, including the favourite, and I reckon he can take in the extra furlong at Dundalk tonight (7f).
The dam’s sire, Namid, was a terrific sprinter. The sire, Footstepsinthesand, won a bit of a race, called the Newmarket 2,000 Guineas!
So class and talent. And that applies to the trainer, too. Joseph O’Brien has just added the Irish Gold Cup to his mantelshelf and it’s onwards and upwards for him as well as Boragh Steps.
War Hero is also a 6f winner only, and in four of his five races here in the autumn, he finished second, including twice over today’s CD.
It’s a worry that he seems to prefer to be the bridesmaid, rather than put in a bigger effort to take the bouquet
NAP: Boragh Steps (7.30 Dundalk)
