Verdict

MARADIVA is strongly fancied to prevail. He can confirm superiority over Back To Basics, King's Spear and Volluto, who were behind him last time. King's Spear is capable of better than he showed last time while Rio Supremo is capable of running well, and Volluto could be vulnerable to a less exposed rival.
