MANDY LEXI is dropped in class after her latest third over C&D with Jet Acclaim behind. She comes out best at the weights and can finally open her account. Hardy Blue has plenty to find with the selection on today's terms despite having won his last two starts including a seller over track and trip and last month's Kempton winner, Stripped Bear, makes more appeal. Charlemagne Diva won a claimer at Thirsk but has failed to figure in a couple of starts since and the remainder are hard to fancy.
