Forecast

Top Power (1/4), Fair Star (3/1), Caius Marcius (13/2), Sea Me Win (12/1), Desert Dawn (12/1), Shanghai City (18/1), Maharashtra (50/1), Rgeebee (66/1), Salad Days (100/1)

Verdict
Fair Star arrives in good form and should make a bold bid under his penalty. However, he will do well to successfully concede that weight to TOP POWER. Admittedly, Andrew Balding's gelding hasn't yet been at his best when fresh, but if he produces anything like the level of form he was showing in the autumn, he should be too good. Desert Dawn could come out next best.
