Verdict

It could pay to side with LUNAR RIVER in this handicap and she is nominated to get the better of both Pha Mai Blue and Follow The Flag. The selection ran a blinder at Lingfield last time when she was caught in the shadows of the post by Some Sunny Day. That form reads well in the context of this race and from a good draw she can gain her compensation for that narrow defeat. Pha Mai Blue has won three times on the all-weather and he beat Shaded Edge at Lingfield last time out. The longer trip should not be a problem but he has tended to reserve his best so far for Lingfield. Follow The Flag was no match for Calahonda at Southwell last time but he has gained all four of his successes on the polytrack so the return to this venue could see him in a better light. Sunny Future has been running consistently well and he wasn't beaten far on his only other previous try here so he could go well at a price. However, the vote goes to Lunar River.
