Forecast

Molinari (1/1), Lady Pendragon (4/1), Water's Edge (6/1), El Salvaje (6/1), Twpsyn (10/1), Mephisto (11/1), Grey Fox (12/1), Andaleep (14/1), On The Right Track (22/1), Fair Power (25/1), Central City (28/1), No Dress Rehearsal (80/1), Haraz (100/1)

Verdict
The obvious starting point is the front-runner Molinari who drops back into a Class 5 contest after producing a career best in defeat at Ascot (1m2f) last weekend. If granted a soft lead he's likely to prove tough to peg back with James Doyle in the saddle. However, in another scenario the stiff Sandown uphill finish could just count against his chances of recording a second career win. Therefore, we look towards the foot of the weights for the solution in the expectation that we're ON THE RIGHT TRACK. Mark Usher's three-year-old was a pleasing third to By Jove and Grand Canal (winner since) on his first attempt at this trip at Salisbury. El Salvaje is also noteworthy
