The Fire Inside a royal chance in Hawkes Bay Gold Cup

Two encouraging runs following a short break has The Fire Inside (pictured) right on target for her black-type mission this weekend as she lines up in the Group 3 Hawkes Bay Gold Cup over 2200m on Saturday.

The talented daughter of Derby winning sire Sir Percy will be partnered by jockey Mark Sweeney, a combination that has seen the pair win on two separate occasions as well as placing in the Group 2 Sir Tristram Fillies Classic at Te Rapa last season.

“We are very happy to have Mark on – he knows the horse well which is huge positive going into tomorrow’s race,” co-trainer Chad Ormsby said.

“She’s been doing everything right and I think she has improved since her last outing.”

The Fire Inside will have to contest with a wide barrier draw, jumping from 15, and will have to be on the receiving end of some good luck to find a nice position in the running.

"If she can get into a good position in the running, I think she can really give this field a shake."
