16/1

Best effort this year when fifth at Wolverhampton in January, but recent turf efforts have lacked sparkle, and opposable for all a tongue tie could conceivably be the catalyst for a revival.

Hard to predict these days, and recent efforts have been poor, but she has won at least once in every season she's raced, so is always dangerous to dismiss despite her inconsistency.

Won twice over 7f here last year, and best effort in a while when 4¾L third of 9 to Mitigator over C&D last time. Jockey booking takes the eye, and she should get involved having slipped to a more workable mark.

Veteran who hasn't fired fully of late, but is now 5lb lower than when runner-up over C&D in May, and hard to rule him out with the handicapper giving him such a lifeline.

Has won five times on turf off much higher marks, and that alone makes him of interest, but nothing to cheer about so far this season, and this gelding is beginning to look a light of former days.

Still a maiden and yet to prove she stays 1m, so easy enough to have misgivings on the back of a poor return at Lingfield early this month, for all that run was probably needed.

Produced a career best when second in a 1m½f handicap at Windsor behind Black Medick on penultimate start, but that is something of a standout, and he failed to match it at Wolverhampton last time, admittedly not enjoying the run of the race.

Form is patchy at various trips, but best effort this year when 3½L fifth of 12 to Affluence over 1¼m here last time. Cheekpieces tried now, and claims if building on promise of latest effort back in distance.

Every chance on form of his second over C&D in May, and while he's not continued in the same vein more recently, he's had excuses, and did too much in front when gambled on at Wolverhampton last time. One to bear in mind.

Yet to score for current yard, but has been placed on two of her last three starts, most recently when third of 12 to All Right in a 1m1f handicap here 12 days ago. Possible that blinkers will draw out more, and she is considered.

Longstanding maiden who is hard to fancy for win purposes, but has a couple of efforts this year which give her place claims, notably a second over 1m at Chelmsford in March. Not discredited back on turf at Brighton last time.

Out of the weights here, and better on AW than turf, but does have form in the past which would give him claims here, so can't be ruled out entirely.

Has only once shown the ability to be competitive in his career to date, when fifth at Wolverhampton on final 2018 start, and hard to fancy after a poor run on return here 12 days ago.

Regressive maiden who is effectively 9lb out of the handicap given his true rating, and very hard to make a case for him, with a change of headgear likely to prove incidental.

Betting

Forecast

Hi Ho Silver (7/2), Agent Of Fortune (7/2), Lunar Deity (5/1), Pinchpoint (8/1), Sir Magnum (11/1), Takiah (12/1), Seaquinn (14/1), Steal The Scene (16/1), Tallulah's Quest (16/1), Alexandrakollontai (18/1), Top Offer (20/1), Paco Dawn (20/1), Pumaflor (25/1), Silvington (66/1), General Patton (100/1)

Verdict

He may be in the veteran bracket, but LUNAR DEITY has several solid pieces of form this year, and the handicapper has been quick to drop him on the back of a couple of lesser efforts. He's preferred to Agent of Fortune, who is a dual course winner and hinted at a revival over C&D last time, and Alexandrakollontai, whose recent form is woeful, but who can be relied upon to win a race or two every season, and is well handicapped now.
