Secret Affairs a winner
THE Jenny Graham-trained Secret Affairs has conditions made to order at Coffs Harbour's TAB meeting this afternoon.
Secret Affairs will be having her third run back from a spell when she contests the Ladies In Racing Class 3 Handicap over 1215m.
The five-year-old daughter of General Nediym was a 1-1/2 lengths from the winner Jet Style when resuming at Grafton on February 20 before finishing a 2-1/2 lengths away in seventh at Port Macquarie last start behind Moneysaver, who went on to win in Saturday company at Doomben.
Secret Affairs' form improves considerably on wet tracks.
The mare won her maiden on a heavy track at Wyong in 2010 when trained by Gary Portelli and was an easy winner of a benchmark 55 handicap at Grafton on August 30 last year.
Arguably, Secret Affair's best run on a heavy track was an unplaced effort at Warwick Farm when she finished a three length behind Rolling Pin on October 26 last year.
Secret Affairs should be right at her peak third-up today and will be given every chance by jockey Dale Spriggs from a good barrier.
Secret Affairs with the track rated heavy has conditions made to order.
