      Verdict

      A race that could produce plenty of dead wood but Bedlam Boy, Bay Swift and My Best Secret are all worth noting with the vote going to Bedlam Boy. The selection has run with great credit on both his bumper runs having finished in the frame on both starts in big fields. That form looks good enough and with a clear round he ran win first time of asking. Bay Swift comes from the same yard as the selection but is an unknown quantity having his first run in public. He comes from a yard that do well with their horses so he has to be respected and any market moves should be noted. My Best Secret ran a blinder on his race course debut at Musselburgh but was a bitter disappointment at the same track last time out. If forgiven the poor show as it was too bad to be true he has a chance but is still to be treated with caution. So for the winner we return to Bedlam Boy.
