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.
  1. Victorious Secret
  2. Nisior Donn
  3. Luna's Luck
