Verdict

OUR IDIC BOY is a sizeable gelding who's showing the benefit of a very patient approach and confirmed his reappearance promise when off the mark in good style at Newcastle on Thursday. Effectively only 5 lb higher here under a penalty, he's taken to follow up at the main expense of fellow-penalised winner Top Man, who took advantage of his reduced mark when seeming suited by this trip at Plumpton.
