Grade 2 success for Secret Investor

Secret Investor looks set for good things this season after running out the impressive winner of Grade 2 Fox Family Persian War Novices' Hurdle at Chepstow for trainer Paul Nicholls in the colours of Hills Of Ledbury. 

It is understood a chasing career now beckons for the son of Kayf Tara who ran out the most impressive winner of his 4yo Maiden point to point on his debut for trainer Donnchadh Doyle at Athlacca in the Spring of 2016. He was then purchased for £175,000 at the Cheltenham May Sale that year by Tom Malone.

It was a very productive meeting for Nicholls, Malone and jockey Harry Cobden as on Saturday at the same venue Posh Trish opened her account over hurdles in fine style under Harry Cobden. She was purchased by Malone at the 2017 Festival Sale for £135,000 after winning her Maiden point to point for Shark Hanlon.
