Verdict

Bobsthewizard last won in December 2009 and was off the track for a long time. He's been dropping in the ratings and should be winning again before too long. Mini Budget is still a maiden after a dozen starts but likes this track and trip and looks well enough treated to get into the frame. Eddie Zero is only 1lb higher than for his sole success over timber but this can safely be left to WESTERN MAN. A P McCoy takes the ride on Ronnie O'Leary's charge, who has produced fine efforts over hurdles and fences already this year and doesn't look to have much to beat.
