Verdict

Cristaliyev sets the standard here but despite a decent run in defeat over six furlongs last time he looked a little one paced so this step down to the minimum trip looks a little counter-intuitive. Kieren Fallon has a good record when riding for Mark Johnston this season so Karate, who has shown ability in two starts is considered. This time though the vote lands with the progressive BARBIERI who left a debut run behind with a good outing over course and distance last time and a similar amount of improvement again should be enough.
