Verdict

Allthegear No Idea is penalised for winning a novice event over track and trip last time and BUY BACK BOB arguably posted a better effort when third in a Class 2 handicap at Musselburgh on his latest start - Tim Vaughan's charge makes more appeal on today's terms. Bumper winner Rude And Crude makes his hurdling bow and is not out of this while it's too soon to write off Got The Nac on the evidence of a promising debut effort at Navan back in March.
