Verdict

Trade Secret stands out on his recent win at Thirsk. He bounced back to score by four lengths over today's distance and remains on a winning mark compared to his 2012 form despite a 9lb rise. But MY NAME IS RIO won the other division of Trade Secret's race in a faster time and Michael Dods' charge has plenty of scope now he's got his head in front. He gets the nod with Time And Place another open to improvement on his return while Star Up In The Sky has been mopping up lower grade sprints on the all-weather recently.
