Red Dragon steps up in class after recording a double at Wolverhampton while Club House moves in the opposite direction and drops down a grade after failing in his attempt to land a hat-trick off today's mark at Lingfield. Little Dolly made a winning debut earlier this month and has the advantage of an apprentice's 5lb claim to help her cause. She was ridden by Seb Sanders last time but that jockey is on board PROPHETS PRIDE today. The latter opened his account in good style over today's trip at Wolverhampton last month and gets the nod here with further progress expected.
