Verdict

LUNAR RIVER is dropped in class and is fancied to put an end to her long losing run as a result. She was beaten less than a length by Iguacu at Lingfield in December and a repeat effort should put her bang there at the finish. Holyfield Warrior was second to Kielty's Folly over a mile here last month with Escardo, Cane Cat and Raghdaan finishing in that order behind him. He should confirm the form over this longer trip, while Idol Deputy and Inquisitress will be looking to build on their recent improved form here.
