Lexington Grace has won two on the bounce since stepping up to seven furlongs, forging clear in the final furlong to win with some authority at Epsom last time out. With the runner up winning twice since a 6lbs rise should prove manageable and she is taken to notch the hat-trick.
Saeed Bin Suroor has an excellent strike rate at the course and his runner Moseeb will be a danger if seeing out this longer trip, while Chai Chai was a winner at Chester when last seen and could be capable of more despite a 5lbs rise.
Lexington Grace (WIN)
Blakeney Point could afford to be eased down close home when winning at Newbury when last seen and has only been raised 3lbs, which looks pretty lenient considering the runner up Danehill Kodiac beat Waldgeist in a Group 3 at the weekend.
Minotaur hasn’t raced on the flat in over a year but his last flat run was a victory over todays’ trip in a listed contest and he has won his last two over hurdles so looks to be the main danger if fully tuned up following a four month break.
Previous course and distance winner Dance The Dream could fight it out for minor honours along with Soldier In Action who actually beat our selection a couple of runs back but has disappointed since.
Blakeney Point (WIN) – NAP
