Whispered Secret was caught wide throughout the early stages of the Fernhill Handicap, but Jason Coyle was able to get the daughter of High Chaparral into a lovely rhythm and she trucked into the race nicely.

The two-year-old let down nicely when asked for an extra effort and she quickly picked up the leader All Too Huiying to claim a comfortable Fernhill Handicap win.

Coyle was impressed with the way that Whispered Secret found the line in the Fernill Handicap and he believes that the raw filly still has plenty of improvement left in front of her.

“It is lovely to get on a nice filly like this,” Coyle said.

“She tracked a little bit wide early, but I was eventually able to get her to relax and I just let her slide forward on a slow tempo.

“She was very raw still and she hit the front pretty early.

“I hadn’t really asked her and when she hit the front she had a look around, but she is a lovely filly.”

James Cummings and Gooree Stud won the Fernhill Handicap with Prized Icon last year before he went on to win the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) and Racing Manager Nacim Dilmi believes that Whispered Secret has the potential to be just as good as the Victoria Derby winner.

“She is another well-bred Gooree filly,” Cummings said.

“Prized Icon proved that he was very good last year when he backed up and he ended up winning the Victoria Derby, so she is a very promising filly.

“She has always shown a lot of ability at home and two starts ago at Newcastle she was very green.

“Today it turned out just how we wanted it to.

“She was three wide without cover, but he didn’t panic and got the job done.

Whispered Secret made her racing debut at Rosehill Gardens on Boxing Day and she failed to fire at Newcastle first-up, but she earnt her place in the Fernhill Handicap with her victory in the Joshua Caruso Foundation Maiden at Newcastle on March 25.
