Lunar River steps up in distance and class after landing a double here last month, while Kingaroo's four wins have all been registered on the Fibresand at Southwell. Camera Shy ran well over C&D on his return from a long lay-off and could figure, along with Sunset Place, who improved for the step up to today's trip last time. However, in an open race, LANDESHERR looks to have as good a chance as any. The German import has had just the three starts, winning the last one at Hanover in October, and could well be up to making a winning debut for new connections.
