Secret Gesture: Middleton Stakes hopeful
Secret Gesture is among ten six-day declarations for the Group Two Betfred Middleton Stakes at York next Thursday.
Ralph Beckett's four-year-old, runner-up in the Investec Oaks at Epsom last season, could make her seasonal reappearance in the Knavesmire contest.
Just behind her in the 2013 Classic was The Lark and Michael Bell's filly could reoppose at York, though she will be burdened by a 2lb penalty following a Group Two win at Doncaster last season.
Roger Varian could run Ambivalent, while Sir Micahel Stoute is set to be represneted by Mango Diva.
Roger Charlton's Thistle Bird, Brian Meehan's Sinaadi, Hughie Morrison's Quiz Mistress, Karl Burke's Odeliz, Clive Brittain's Jathabah and Paul Cole's Gifted Girl complete the entries.
