By yesterday afternoon Sheffield had 18 entries for the GAIN Nutrition Three Steps To Victory and are confident of a full book by closure at noon today.

The racing office’s Matt Stagg said: “There are some decent ones among them. Kevin Boon has Headford Maurice and Sheldan, Harry Williams has entered Pond Adonis, John McLAughlan has Spanish Maiden, there are a couple of ‘Geelos’, Arthur Noodle, Trade Fudge. . .lots with decent form.”

The event gets underway over the 480 metres next Tuesday and concludes with a £10,000 first prize a fortnight later.

Trainers are reminded that the advertised telephone number in the GBGB Calendar is out of date.
