SECRET SIGN was quite impressive when tried over this trip for the first time at Chepstow on Thursday, defying a big weight to get the better of 11 rivals. This is a stronger heat and he has a penalty to carry but there may be more to come now he has shown he has the speed for the minimum distance and a quick double looks a possibility. Clean Blow has been running well without reward and should be winning soon but Vincentti only won a three-runner race over C&D earlier this month. Scatty Cat has travelled over from County Kildare again, however, after getting off the mark at Chepstow and can't be ignored. She makes more appeal than the exposed Bridge Night.
