In depth

Verdict

Lunar Deity. RIGHT ABOUT NOW, Sussex Girl and Tyrsal came home first, second, third and fifth when the they clashed here earlier this month. The first two were only separated by a neck and the Dwyer inmate is weighted to reverse placings on revised terms. Tyrsal is also significantly better off now and could get much closer as he normally performs well around here. Sussex Girl arguably ran her best race of the season in the aforementioned contest and is a player if finding that same level but has finished mid-division in a Newmarket handicap since. Oceanus, Luna Magic and Bayston Hill aren't out of this either.
