The first race of the afternoon on day two of Glorious Goodwood is the Class 2 Handicap over 1m4f and Secret State for Charlie Appleby could still have more in the tank.
Making his debut in April over a mile at Newmarket he was a good second behind the smart Francesco Clemente for John & Thady Gosden and then up in trip to 10.5f at Chester saw off the smart Honiton with ease to get off the mark.
Dropped back to a mile next time out he made it back to back wins in good fashion and was then bumped up to 1m4f at Royal Ascot and revelled in the extra distance.
Having been extremely well backed ahead of the King George V Stakes on handicap debut off a mark of 93, he gritted down and stayed on exceptionally well to land a hat-trick.
The second has since gone on to land a Group Three and only 7lb higher he should go close again.
