A 'casual' and 'relaxed' Fierce Impact gave jockey Luke Currie a nice feel ahead of Saturday's Cox Plate at The Valley.
The Matthew Smith-trained Group 1 winner at 1600m stretched his legs on Tuesday morning at Breakfast With The Best, leaving Currie happy with how the horse is tracking ahead of Saturday's grand final.
The $35 chance with Sportsbet will jump from barrier 12. Currie said he'd love to see his horse relax in the run to help him get the 2000-metre trip.
"He was pretty casual about it all, pretty relaxed. So he was quite good, he gave me a good feel and rounded it off quite nice," Currie said.
"It would be nice to land behind the speed, have that cuddly run and be able to produce him late."

Mugatoo ($27) also pleased John Allen with his work on Tuesday morning, despite not being asked to do much after completing his solid piece of work on Saturday.
The six-year-old has drawn barrier nine.
"It was just to familiarise him with the track and for me to get to know him a bit better too," Allen said of Tuesday's work.
"(He's made) a good impression. He is a good style of horse, big and powerful, a good big stride. He was well balanced around there, was happy to get on his Melbourne leg.
"It was important to see he was comfortable going that way."
