Co-trainer Clayton Tonkin says Like A Wildfire will get his Grand Circuit chance following a dominant victory in his latest outing.
Like A Wildfire continues to shine after returning from a nine-month lay-off and blew away his rivals in the TAB The Pure Steel on Saturday night.
Reinsman David Moran was in the sulky as Like A Wildfire beat Boy From Bondi by 4.6metres while Tango Tara came in third and Torrid Saint fourth.
Moran believes that Like A Wildfire continues to fly under the radar a little and believes there is much more to come from him.
"He’s very underrated and I think when he gets up into that top echelon or into the good country cups he’s going to be very dangerous," Moran told reporters after the race.
The win was Like A Wildfire's second in three starts since returning to action while he came fourth in the other outing, proving that he is back in the groove.
The stable felt their charge warranted a place in the Hunter Cup at the weekend but they were happy for him to put in a "super run" when taking out The Pure Steel.
Looking ahead Tonkin, who trains alongside Emma Stewart, says Like A Wildfire will now get his Grand Circuit chance when they take him to Menangle later this year.
"I’m going to take him to Sydney for the sprint lead-up races to the (Miracle) Mile, that will just give him his opportunity and we’ll see how he goes," Tonkin said.
