Secret Pulse

Secret Pulse put up a nice performance to win the one-mile fillies’ maiden at The Curragh on Sunday. Sharply away, she settled nicely through the early stages of the race for Colin Keane in the slipstream of early leader Salsa. She travelled well to the three-furlong marker and she moved up easily on the outside of the leader to dispute the lead on the run to the two-furlong pole, before picking up well when her rider asked her to. She stretched out all the way to the line to come away from Salsa, who in turn had a break of a couple of lengths on the rest of the field.

This was a nice step forward by Gerry Keane’s filly on just her fourth run. Unraced as a juvenile, she ran well in a good fillies’ maiden at The Curragh in July won by Etneya, and she was only just beaten at Cork on her last run before Sunday. She was impressive in winning on Sunday, she could have been called as the most likely winner from a fair way out, and she showed a really nice attitude in coming clear. There is plenty of speed in her pedigree, but she stays a mile well, and it appears that she is at home on easy ground. She is lightly raced and she has the potential to progress again.
