17/2/2020 Track gallop to decide Fierce Impact's next run 

 A crucial track gallop at Warwick Farm will determine immediate plans for Fierce Impact (Deep Impact) as trainer Matt Smith weighs up Group 1 options in Sydney and Melbourne. The horse resumed with a slashing second to Alabama Express in the C F Orr Stakes, signalling he was in for another lucrative campaign. Delighted with his return, Smith has brought Fierce Impact home to Sydney and is keen to see how he shapes up in a trackwork test on Monday before deciding his next move. "It will either be the Futurity or the Chipping Norton," Smith said. "It really depends how sharp he works. If he worked nice and sharp on Monday then we will go to Melbourne. If he works like he's looking for the mile, like the edge is off him a little bit, we will wait and go to the Chipping Norton."
