Verdict

Point-to-point winner Bob Ford is worth a second glance on his debut under Rules but TOP GAMBLE gets the vote. David Pipe's charge went very close when sent off favourite at Chepstow on his debut and normal progress should see him come out best in this. Cash For Steel wasn't disgraced on her introduction at Wincanton and should be thereabouts but the remainder are easily overlooked unless newcomer Big Ideas comes in for any strong support.
