Verdict

SHORE STEP makes most appeal in an impossible-looking finale, and he is building up a solid portfolio this season. Downtown Diva is less obvious, but has been running well, and should appreciate the demands of this intermediate trip, while it may be worth forgiving Rattling Jewel a rare poor run in a much better race than this last time.
  1. Shore Step
  2. Downtown Diva
  3. Rattling Jewel
