LEXINGTON PLACE took the rise in class in his stride when successful at Leicester a week ago having won at Redcar before that. He's already beaten Chloe's Dream of these and a hat-trick looks in the offing. Carlisle winner Salvatore Fury drops back down a grade and may finish closer as a result but has a bit to find with the selection on line through Chloe's Dream. It was soft ground when Ichimoku won at Newcastle and Pastoral Prey makes more appeal on his earlier efforts at this track.
