Race The Moon beat Fearless Will to the runner-up spot to fill that position for the third race in a row but may have to settle for another supporting role, this time behind FIVE STAR KIP. Karl Broberg drops his six-year-old in both class and distance, and it can pay off.
BERNARDIAN has improved his finishing position with every appearance so far this year, and his latest second suggested his turn could be imminent. John Allen was ahead of Aloo Ghost and Proud Moments when runner-up at the beginning of the month and he might be the primary threat.
WORLD has finished second on two of his last three outings, including when going agonisingly close over 6f most recently. He looked the winner there so maybe the drop in trip can have the desired effect. In The Nic Of Time, Soul Temptation and Woods Of Congaree are the rivals he has to worry about.
JOLLYVILLE was a position and a fair distance ahead of Do You Bileve when third on her second outing. The rise to this trip got the best out of her on that occasion and she can make it third-time lucky. Juliard Honor made a satisfactory debut, while Luckily and Ain’t No Fool have place claims again.
HUNKA BURNING LOVE sauntered clear to score by ten lengths when scoring over track and trip earlier this month and is difficult to oppose after such a dominant performance. Dame Plata had Miltontown back in second when recording a fluent success under these conditions last month and looks the pick for minor honours.
IN THE DEEP highlighted his resolution to record a determined success over track and trip earlier this month and could improve further being the least exposed member of the field. Western Drawl came with a late rattle to score under these conditions last time and looks next best ahead of the consistent Vix Vision.

MAUI JANE had Kottoncandy Kisses (third) and Mizz Mattis (fourth) in behind when finishing a neck second over track and trip earlier this month and looks to have been found the ideal opportunity to regain the winning thread. Billie G drops significantly in grade and may prove the biggest danger.
FIGURE has been running with real credit in more valuable contests of late and though the drop in trip does pose a few questions, she is taken to land the spoils. Impressive maiden winner Foolish Princess is interesting up in grade, while Nina’s Promise has claims if fully wound up on her return.
Criminal ran well in this grade over track and trip last month and could be forgiven his struggles in stakes company last time, but SPEAKER VAN was certainly not stopping when successful over an extended 5f here last time and can confirm form with Word To The Wise here.
FAYETTE WARRIOR has not been disgraced in better races of late and might prove a cut above these rivals. Jrock and Dominante could be the main dangers in what looks a weak race.
