Verdict

Shirley's Pride failed to land a hat-trick off today's mark at Bath last time and Lexington Place is upped a grade having won a lowly handicap at Redcar a fortnight ago when beating the re-opposing Megaleka. Dream Ally is struggling for form, though he can race off a lower mark than when winning at Wolverhampton last season, but this looks a good chance for HOT SECRET to rediscover winning ways. She's been running well in mostly better company than this so far this year and Andrew Balding's filly produced another good effort at Bath last time.
