Nottingham winner LEXINGTON ABBEY made his seasonal debut in a higher grade race at Doncaster. He faded close home but today's faster ground and lesser opposition can see him back to winning ways. Ifwecan also drops in class but doesn't look particularly well handicapped while Red Pike and Election Night are facing tougher tasks after landing maiden races at Thirsk and Redcar respectively. Kempton winner Divine will need to step up on her latest effort at Doncaster but has more scope than Sandra's Diamond.
