Winner here over 6f in December off a 16lb lower mark. Fifth of seven on sole start over C&D in May 2017. Open to more improvement and in flying form at present.

Second of eight beaten ½L over C&D at the end of last month off a 1lb lower mark. Entitled to make the shortlist for yard that have returned a 34% win and place strike rate at this venue in early February since 2016.

Winner of a Kempton handicap when last seen in October when in the care of trainer John Butler. That was impressive and worth a market check on stable debut despite revised mark.

One from four over C&D with the win coming in March last year off a 2lb lower mark. Last seen in July finishing second of nine in a Wolverhampton 7f handicap and may need the run on return to the track.

Course winner that has also won over this trip and has hit the frame on a couple of occasions in five starts over C&D. Liable to find a couple stronger.

Lost his maiden tag at the 11th attempt over C&D in October but may have found his new mark a little too much when going down by 2¼L later in the month. Worth a market check from one of the leading yards at this venue.

Out of luck in six starts here including four over C&D. Career best when second of 14 here for trainer Mick Winters last April. Market likely to be the best guide on stable debut.

Winner of six of his 34 starts at this venue but losing run goes back a long way. Significant improvement needed in this heat.

Three from 13 over C&D but on a long losing sequence. Struggling of late and has plenty to prove in this contest.

Nothing of note in three career starts since September. Significant drop in trip over C&D last month failed to pay dividends and others preferred.

C&D winner last month off a 7lb lower mark and ran well in defeat last time out finishing 1¾L adrift of Victorious Secret again over the track and trip combination. One to consider.

Dual C&D winner last month and holds solid and consistent figures in a number of starts since October. Has the form to make a bold bid seeking a hat-trick here.

Forecast

Billyfairplay (10/3), Kasbah (5/1), Victorious Secret (11/2), Fashaar (11/2), Nisior Donn (8/1), Luna's Luck (8/1), Hey Pretty (8/1), Silk Cravat (9/1), Tribal Path (12/1), Pacolita (16/1), Eagle Reel (25/1), My Good Brother (33/1), Connemera Queen (33/1), Annie Fior (50/1), Tynamite (N/A), Arlecchino's Rock (N/A)

Verdict

The Holy Roman Emperor mare, VICTORIOUS SECRET can land a hat-trick of wins following a couple of victories last month. The rise in the weights may not be enough to halt the progress of the six-year-old and she can see off the attentions of the likes of course winner, Billyfairplay and C&D winner last month, Nisior Donn. Luna's Luck for trainer Mick Halford won over C&D in October and is worthy of consideration on his first start for 100 days.
