Lexington Force wins for Middleham Park Racing
We said yesterday that we were hopeful that Lord P would win again after his comfortable win at Southwell on the 30th January and he did not disappoint! Given a cool ride by our 5lb claimer Thore Hammer-Hansen he came from last to first in the final two furlongs to win by a cosy 3/4 of a length. He continues to improve and hopefully he can make it a hat-trick of wins on his next appearance.
Later in the card we had Lexington Force making his debut for Middleham Park Racing in the mile novice. This lovely son of Dabirsim quickened away impressively under hands and heals riding inside the last furlong to win by 1 3/4 lengths. He showed signs of inexperience but was given a lovely ride by Martin Dwyer and will come on for the experience and a further trip in time.
