Verdict

LUMINOUS GOLD is taken to follow up from his recent success at the expense of Volito and Triple Dream. The selection is four pounds higher in the weights since gaining victory at Folkestone but can still be a major threat off that mark. He is a tough and consistent sort who rarely knows how to run a bad race and if reproducing his form he will not be far away. Volito has been knocking on the door of late finishing second in his last two races. He is now two pounds higher but can still be competitive and has to be added to the short list. Triple Dream is another that deserves to be winning soon. He has been winless since September of last year and with a string of near misses to his name in recent weeks it wont be long before he gets his head in front. Luminous Gold still looks well in at the weights and looks the percentage call.
