Take the Hint at Wetherby

OFFICIALS at Wetherby must be thrilled with the strong support their inaugural Flat meeting has received and SECRET HINT can steal a share of the limelight with victory in the feature Cash Out At bet365 Fillies' Handicap.

The West Yorkshire venue breaks new ground by racing on the level but the decision has paid rich dividends as there is a welter of runners declared and Secret Hint could prove to be a class act.

Sent on the trip north by trainer Andrew Balding, Secret Hint will be having just her sixth career start here, but her efforts to date have marked her a filly who could make a real impact at a reasonable level this term.

Winner of a Doncaster maiden last July, Secret Hint flopped on her handicap debut at Goodwood on her next start but showed better form next time to finish fourth back at the Sussex track before hitting the mark at Newmarket.

It was a decent six-furlong heat that Secret Hint claimed at Headquarters but her three-quarter-length verdict ensured the handicapper could not go too mad and a 4lb rise certainly does not look insurmountable.

TRINITY STAR can write his name into the record books by winning the bet365.com Handicap, the opening event of the day as the better ground at Wetherby is likely to suit.

WEKEYLL is the pick in the first division of the bet365 EBF Stallions Maiden Stakes while FLY WITH EMIRATES is the choice in Division Two.
