This looks to chiefly concern JUPITER and Majestic Spring. The latter has been in good heart of late and goes well at this track but the former has only found one too strong the last twice now and he looks to have been found a decent spot today. Vaulted Son might prove best of the rest.

Verdict

SPARK KIT had Chaotic Bull back in third when only finding one too strong at this track last time and that pair could dominate here. The former is most consistent and certainly deserves to win again. One Fast Sarava is also noted.
