Despite having won just once in the past three years, Tax Free will be fancied for this as he's drawn in stall one and should be up with the pace from the start. Last year's winner Doctor Parkes is only 3lb higher but arrived in winning form that day and is without a prep race this time. Falasteen isn't badly treated and Kieren Fallon should be able to get a good position from stall four, though he sometimes gets left at the gate, but the lightly-raced and progressive Dickie's Lad ran poorly on his only start on ground with some give. Jamesway has just one victory from 18 starts on turf but looks quite well treated and made a decent comeback at Epsom on easy ground. Blue Jack ran well in the race a year ago and comes here in good form but it's CONFESSIONAL, fourth last year when out with the washing in stall 12, who is handed the vote as he's ideally berthed and the handicapper has given him a chance again.
