Formscan - Secret State didn't appear to get home when tried over 1m6f at Ascot on his final outing after a productive campaign which saw him land valuable handicaps at Royal Ascot and Goodwood before finishing second in the Great Voltigeur. Gelded over the winter, he remains capable of another step forward, but the lack of a recent run sways the verdict in favour of TYRRHENIAN SEA. Runner-up to subsequent Dubai Turf hero Lord North in the Winter Derby on his return, he is more than likely to confirm that effort with Foxes Tales, who was one place behind, and it would be no surprise to see him progress again given his size and scope. Phantom Flight can be forgiven his final run of last season at Ayr which came after a huge performance at York's Ebor Festival and he's still of considerable interest going forward.
