​"exceeds" seems to be the word the original sentence was looking for.  If
using a single word I kinda like reversing the direction and using
"precedes"​ though.  "follows" makes it sound like a puppy :)

"is greater than" is a bit more verbose but an option as well - one that
seems more natural in this space - and yes I've reverted back to
lower->upper with this wording.  I think the hard "x" in exceeds is what
turned me off to it.
