Verdict

BACK BOB BACK looks worth backing. A former point-to-pointer winner, Tom George's charge ran a blinder here last month. Bled won well here last time and his official rating of 110 means he commands respect, as does Definite Dawn with a couple of runs for fitness under his belt. Domoly and Hardwick Wood may be more handicapping types, so My Boy Paddy rates a bigger danger. He is another Irish point-to-point recruit and should have no problem with the testing ground or the step up in trip.
