Verdict

It's worth sticking with LUNAR RIVER in this. She won over 1m2f here a week ago and this drop back in trip, though not ideal, shouldn't inconvenience her too much. Today's apprentice has ridden plenty of winners and David Pinder's mare can take care of Holyfield Warrior, Inquisitress and King Of The Titans once again. Guildenstern is often placed at this level and had Crianza behind when runner-up here earlier this month, while Kenswick is another with place claims back in this grade.
