The Sportsman's Verdict
LUMEN was fancied to leave his previous moderate performances a long way behind when sent off favourite for his handicap debut at Lingfield, and duly got the job done. He relished the step up to 2m and appeared to score a shade cosily so a 3lb rise could be lenient. Yasir still has plenty of life in him at the age of 10 and backed up a C&D triumph with a solid third over 1m6f. Calvinist has let down favourite-backers twice since a 1m4f success and is still to convince with his stamina for this trip.
