Greyhound feed company GAIN have stepped in to sponsor the prestigious Three Steps To Victory at Sheffield.

The only tri-distance event in the calendar, won last year by Swift Hansel and with a role of honour that includes Ballymac Eske and Tucks Mein, will retain its £10,000 first prize.

The 480 metre opening round takes place on Tuesday July 9, with the 500m semis on a week later concluding with the 660 metre decider on July 23rd.
