Secret Admirer Begins her Caulfield Cup campaign at Warwick Farm on Saturday

The Grahame Begg-trained mare will be having her first start since the autumn where she performed consistently without being able to break through for victory.

A daughter of Dubawi, Secret Admirer finished runner-up in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic and also finished third in both the George Ryder Stakes and the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

After winning the Flight Stakes as a three-year-old, the talented mare showed last season she could match it in open company when winning the Group 1 Epsom Handicap and finishing fifth in the Cox Plate.

Begg was pleased with her performances last season but believes she is poised to make a bigger impact this year.

“She’s certainly matured. She’s where she should be at,” Begg said.

The Randwick trainer said his stable star needs races to be run at a fast tempo and is excited about her chances first-up given the make up of the field.

Among those that can set the early pace is 2011 Warwick Stakes winner Pinwheel who is returning in good form to defend his title.

The Darley-owned seven-year-old showed earlier this month that he still has plenty of good racing in him as he produced a dominant performance to win the Group 3 Missile Stakes by two lengths.

Also having their first start of the spring is Lights Of Heaven and Australian Derby runner-up Polish Knight.

Other Warwick Stakes contenders include New Zealand 2000 Guineas winner Rock ‘N’ Pop and in-form Queensland gelding Startsmeup.

For great value Warwick Stakes odds head to and back an early spring winner.
