Verdict

A disappointing turnout for the opener and an opportunity for LEXINGTON PLACE to post a fifth victory on the spin. David O'Meara's gelding is 22lb higher than when he began his winning streak but he's continued to improve at a speed that the handicapper has been unable to keep up with. If he acts upon Epsom's unique 5f chute, he should take the beating. Holley Shiftwell is in good nick and she won well at Newmarket. Stuart Williams' filly had every chance of adding to her tally at Haydock Park before being overhauled close home and a 2lb rise for those labours seems unfortunate. Somethingaboutmary is tried in blinkers for the first time. A winner of two starts on artificial surfaces for her previous trainer, she is yet to trouble the judge on turf.
