Lumen - who was a surprise favourite for many, took the first race of the day at Lingfield in Division I of the Betway Stayers Handicap.
With nothing to go off form wise, he had been beaten in all four stars on the AW - with distances varying from 1m-1m4f. His form card read 0900 prior to today, but Roger Charlton looks to have sorted this one out perfectly.
The 3yo raced wide throughout in mid-division, began to make headway travelling well over 2f out, before going 2nd 2f out. He edged left over 1f out, and after being strongly ridden, he stayed on to lead towards finish.
