Verdict

A couple of three-year-olds have won this seller in recent years so Sexy Secret might be worth another look in a first-time hood. Banreenahreenkah has been placed a couple of times in this grade this year but ROYAL TROOPER won off a 2lb higher mark on the Polytrack over the winter under Becky Brisbourne and, competing at this lowly level for the first time, looks the one beat. Unidexter remains a maiden but the booking of Richard Hughes catches the eye and the gelding has place claims in a race like this.
