Verdict

Zero Money won this last year but is 5lb higher today and has plenty to find with a rejuvenated TAX FREE on latest running. The latter also had Doctor Parkes, Mister Manannan and Hazelrigg behind when scoring at York last time and Dandy Nicholls' charge has every chance of following up with a similar effort. Cheviot comes into the reckoning on his earlier conditions race victory at Beverley and Face The Problem has decent claims on this season's form. My Propeller has yet to hit top gear this year but is preferred to Epsom winner Long Awaited if back to his best.
