Depends if the ugly neck is muscling or structure. Mum's gelding has a horrible neck at the moment but the structure underneath is pretty darn nice, so with correct work he will end up having quite a nice neck. It does make correct work more difficult, though, to have a badly muscled neck. Between a horse with a good neck and a horse with a bad neck I will choose the horse with the good neck every time!
