Distance No Problem for Secret Admirer in 2012 Caulfield Cup

Grahame Begg is confident a sharp step up in distance won’t pose any problems for Secret Admirer when the five-year-old lines up in the 2012 Caulfield Cup (2400m) on Saturday week.

Secret Admirer

Grahame Begg is not concerned by a large step up in distance in the Caulfield Cup for Secret Admirer

It will be her first test at the distance and represents a rise of 800 metres from her last-start fifth in the Epsom Handicap.

Begg said the dual Group 1 winner had given every indication this preparation that the increase in distance will provide a positive rather than a negative.

“This whole time in she’s given us the impression she’s been looking for sort of 2000m plus,” Begg said.

“But we went through the process…we kept her in everything.

The Randwick-based trainer said the increase in distance would not change the way she is trained, with daughter of Dubawi to be given a preview look at the track on Tuesday.

“We won’t train her any differently. We keep her work pretty sharp,” he said.

“When we do gallop her we don’t go much further than 600 metres. She’s very clean winded.

“She will have her last bit of work next Tuesday morning at Caulfield.”

With Peter Moody-trained import Voila Ici and a number of other runners likely to ensure the Caulfield Cup is run at a genuine tempo, Begg is confident Secret Admirer will be given every chance to feature in the finish.

“Caulfield Cups are generally run at a pretty genuine tempo…it will certainly give her a chance to come into the race,” Begg said.

Despite being a consistent performer, Secret Admier has not won since the 2011 Epsom Handicap.

She has won just three times but placed on another 12 occasions from 20 starts and collected nearly $1.2 million in prizemoney.
