Mixed form in four starts so far but some sort of a case can be made for him on his C&D fourth here in November, and although well beaten latest that race is working out well enough. Hooded here, and not ruled out.

Shown very little in three starts and after an absence, looks to be fighting a losing battle to get involved here. Plenty to find on bare form.

A rather disappointing last of eight on Chelmsford debut but given 25-1 price tag, maybe little was expected. Yard do well with these types and she will do better at some point, but you'd like to see some market support first.

Well beaten at massive prices on both starts and hasn't been seen for over a year. As much as the stable are enjoying a good winter, it's most unlikely this one will be adding to the tally.

Has beaten only a handful of horses home in two starts so far, didn't run on when asked last time and looks a most unlikely winner here.

Never in the hunt on debut at Wolverhampton at the end of last year and on breeding, likely to find this plenty sharp enough a test. Best watched until getting the hang of things.

Had the two starts so far, running to a similar level on both, but didn't get the best of passages at Wolverhampton last time and might have finished a bit closer but for trouble. May improve a bit, and looks one of the more likely ones.

Beaten just two horse home in two starts, sent off 100-1 each time so very little was expected. May be another dose of that here.

Not a bad debut behind the improving Toybox at Kempton and although last of six back there last time, wasn't beaten far. This is weak enough to think that a repeat of those efforts would take her close, and has to be considered.

5/4

Almost made it third time lucky when just denied at Wolverhampton last time out (had a couple of these behind her), caught final stride after looking to have done enough. Repeat of that makes her the one to beat.

First start for this yard, not a dreadful introduction at Chelmsford for Henry Spiller but fact winner of that was a 150-1 shot rather devalues the form. Might do better again, but probably best watched after a break today.

Betting

Forecast

Secret Ace (5/4), Dancing Ballerina (3/1), Sea of Reality (7/2), Reignite (4/1), Minoria (11/1), Miss Pollyanna (12/1), Check In Check Out (16/1), Spirit Of Lucerne (20/1), Magnetic (25/1), Brogans Bay (50/1), Laguna Spirit (50/1), Singer In The Sand (66/1)

Verdict

This is winnable, and anything with improvement to come has to be given every chance. The likes of Sea Of Reality and Minoria both fall into that category and need a look in the market, and the likes of Dancing Ballerina and Reignite have runs under their belts that give them every chance on form, but SECRET ACE went very close to breaking her duck at Wolverhampton, and she need only repeat that run to take this.
