Has been well ridden the last twice, scoring over C&D before going down to a progressive sort while finding plenty at Ascot last time. Should take all the beating down in grade.

Doesn't look like living up to his pedigree at this moment in time, slowly away when mid-field on handicap debut at Haydock last month. Blinkers could make a difference, though.

Has improved with each run and, having seemed to find the test a bit too much when third at Newmarket on handicap debut, she could take another step forward now back down in trip.

Just fair form to date but shaped with encouragement when a staying-on seventh on first handicap outing over C&D last time. Might need further to show improvement, though.

Leniently treated and back on song recently, coming clear of the others despite not looking entirely straightforward when third at Chepstow 16 days ago. Fallon takes a useful 3lb off.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

MOLINARI pulled out plenty for pressure when overhauled late by the progressive Tenbury Wells last Sunday and, dropped into a lesser race, makes plenty of appeal in his bid to regain the winning thread. Most of the others are well exposed, but fellow 3yos El Salvaje and Grey Fox remain with potential, so they also warrant consideration.

Betting Forecast

4/1 Molinari (Ire), 12/1 Mephisto (Ire), 12/1 Lady Pendragon, 12/1 Grey Fox (Ire), 9/1 Water's Edge (Ire), 66/1 No Dress Rehearsal, 16/1 Fair Power (Ire), 12/1 Central City (Ire), 12/1 Andaleep (Ire), 66/1 Haraz (Ire)
