Wright’s Dylicious Secret

8
May

Dylicious Secret makes her maiden trip to Kalgoorlie and will take a stack of beating if she can replicate her previous run in Perth.

The Dylan Thomas filly ran a sound fourth to North Ridge, beaten 3 ¼ lengths after attempting to lead throughout at Ascot three weeks back.

The form out of that race is strong with fourth placegetter, Hell Of A Story, progressing to break his maiden status at Ascot last fortnight.

Dylicious Secret, drawn perfectly in barrier one for Natasha Faithfull, lines up in the Stationery Plus Office Choice Handicap (1300m).

Trainer Craig Wright says the three-year-old should improve and strip fitter after her campaign was disrupted last month.

“I felt she was caught short and underdone after she missed at meeting at Geraldton when it was abandoned,” said Wright.

“I think this looks a suitable race for her and she is in good order.

“If you take a line on her last run the form stacks up.

“There is a lot to take out of that performance.”

Wright has no hesitation in backing up stable mate Tinker Tailor who went agonisingly close to shedding her maiden tag last week.

Tinker Tailor had the race in her keeping when she shot four lengths clear in the straight, but was cut down late by Play With Magic.

The margin was a long-neck, her second consecutive placing after a fourth to Dark Royalty when first-up in March.

The Trade Fair filly, drawn in barrier five for Natasha Faithfull, is poised to shed her winless tag in the Safe And Sound Storage Maiden (1200m).

“It was six weeks between runs and she was just found wanting in the final 100m,” said Wright.

“This looks a good race and I rate her a good each way chance.”

Leading trainer Peter Fernie has made a flying start to the Kalgoorlie season and is certain to add to his ten winners on Sunday.

Holding high appeal is stable newcomer Tom Almighty and Harvey’s Loss who embarks on his return.

Fernie will be hoping Harvey’s Loss can commence in the same flying fashion as he ended last year’s campaign when he won three races and was placed twice from his final five starts.

The Mossman six-year-old, who ran second in a 600 metre trial hit out, starts from barrier seven in the Goldfields Engraving & Tyrepower Handicap (1200m).

“He had a really good round last year and is pretty tough,” said Fernie on TABradio.

“I think he should go really good.”

Tom Almighty, who won first up for Fernie a week back, tackles the Lakes Electrical Distributors Handicap (1600m).
