Lexington to put rivals in Place

Red Hand

LEXINGTON PLACE can give Ruth Carr arguably the most poignant victory of her training career by winning at Ripon on Tuesday. 

The five-year-old chestnut is one of 12 runners declared for the five-furlong David Chapman Memorial Handicap, a race named in honour of Carr’s grandfather. 

A strong field has been assembled for what is a typically open northern sprint, but Lexington Place has been in great nick all summer and deserves to win another nice prize. 

The son of Compton Place knocked off three consecutive victories earlier in the year, but showed at Ayr last month that he might still have a little room with which to manoeuvre before the handicapper gets busy. 

That said, Lexington Place perhaps blew his chance at the start as he was slowly out of the traps. He still made encouraging late headway and was only beaten two-and-a-quarter lengths by Rural Celebration, who renews rivalry at Ripon but off an elevated mark. 

Lexington Place remains on the same rating, with connections obviously keener than most to win a race of such resonance. 

Katie Gale won smartly at Musselburgh last month and looks nicely poised to follow up in the Betfred Membership Play Your Way Handicap at Catterick. 

Mick Appleby’s stayer does not have many miles on the clock for a five-year-old, yet has not been excessively punished by the assessor for what was quite a snug success at the Scottish venue. 

With the recent rainfall almost certain to work to her advantage, Katie Gale must have a sound chance as she reverts to her preferred trip of a mile-and-three-quarters. 

Boonga Roogeta has impressive figures at Chelmsford and should not be monitored in the Bet totetrifecta Fillies’ Handicap. Two wins from three starts at the venue tells its own story, while a recent run at Newmarket did little to diminish the optimism. 

Peter Charalambous’s mare unluckily found her path blocked on more than one occasion in a class-two, one-mile handicap so actually did well to finish fourth. 

Boonga Roogeta is only 4lb higher than when she won so well at this track in June and will have no issues whatsoever at the prospect of going back up a couple of furlongs. 


Nap: Lexington Place (7.35pm, Ripon)
Double: Katie Gale (3.45pm, Catterick)
Treble: Boonga Roogeta (7.50pm, Chelmsford)
Yankee: Jersey Bull (3.30pm, Salisbury)
