BREAKFAST CLUB ran green at Lingfield but still got the job done with Diligent Lady only fourth. He didn’t have much to beat but will know more today and this more galloping track should suit so he is fancied to give the weight away to the frustrating Dark Kris, who was a beaten favourite for the third time in a Doncaster handicap last week. None of the others make much appeal.
