Verdict
A typically competitive opener to the Ebor meeting and it's hard to split many of them on form but trainer Paul Midgley won this last year and FINAL VENTURE looks like having the best chance of his trio this time around with Oisin Murphy back on board. Holmeswood is well-handicapped on his form from last summer while Tis Marvellous was impressive last time and has claims if building on that.
  1. Final Venture
  2. Holmeswood
  3. Tis Marvellous
