SECRET LOCKET was having her first start here when just failing to hold off the late thrust of Reckless Lad last week and, as she has more scope than most of these, can go one better. Great Ability was behind and looks held while California Rose was well beaten on the same card. Hoppsan has never run here but has been showing some ability on Turf and may have enough improvement in him to get involved. Valley Queen's run behind Cool Athlete here in September would give her a chance of reaching the frame.
