Can Steps In Time Make Group 1 Rise in 2013 Coolmore Classic?

She’s the form runner in the field but can Steps In Time continue her streak and claim her first Group 1 win in the 2013 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill on Saturday?

There’s no doubting her ability but it won’t be an easy task, carrying 57.5kg against a quality group of fillies and mares.

The John O’Shea-trained mare looks an improved galloper from the one seen in past seasons and will head into the race with two strong wins behind her.

After fighting off Red Tracer to claim the Group 2 Thoroughbred Breeders’ Classic first-up she backed that up with a dominant front-running performance to win the Listed Wiggle Stakes by three lengths.

So will the strong form continue? Or will she again be just shy of Group 1 class? Keep reading for some important facts on Steps In Time as well as a summary of her chances in the Coolmore Classic.
