Verdict

Blitzing Mario continues to knock on the door and he looks sure to go close again, but preference is for the less exposed CALIFORNIA GOLD. He left is debut performance well behind when runner-up over 5 1/2f here and can improve further for this drop in trip. Mt Pockets will also benefit from dropping in distance, as well as class.

LUNA'S EMPIRE has been in cracking form, finishing no worse than second in her last five starts, and she could notch a third career victory in this contest. Spring Sprung has to be respected chasing the hat-trick, while Raspberry Punch and Susan Snuck In add further spice to the race.
