Yes, many thanks. I verified in a number of scenarios.

With Class.cast intrinsified can we can replace uses of following method in j.l.i.MethodHandleImpl with Class.cast?

    static <T,U> T castReference(Class<? extends T> t, U x) {
        // inlined Class.cast because we can't ForceInline it
        if (x != null && !t.isInstance(x))
            throw newClassCastException(t, x);
        return (T) x;
