The quick back up will come to the fore when it comes to the Grand Annual Steeple (5500m) this Thursday at Warrnambool according to the market.

I’ll’ava’half, who won the 2350m flat race on Tuesday, was $7 before Tuesday but after the win, he came into $4.80 before easing back to $5. He is still the best backed runner.

The other horse on the back up is King Of The Forest, who ran a blinder in the Brierly. He was the $41 outsider and immediately firmed to $14 but drifting a point.

Favourite for the race is Slowpoke Rodriguez, who has been $3.60 out from $3.40.
