Verdict

There are some very promising point-to-points winners engaged in this but not many of them have experience under Rules and these fences are among the most unforgiving in the country. Forest Walker won easily at Ludlow last month while Bay To Go was second at Sandown and Ballyjames was only beaten half-a-length at Bangor. HARBOUR COURT looked an exciting prospect when winning by 10 lengths at Kingston Blunt in March for Alan Hill and is taken to make a winning start over regulation fences, though Following Dreams will be a danger if Liam Payter can get him settled in this big field. Charlotte Tizzard's Little Cornham would prefer a quicker surface, however, and Ruapehu needs to improve again to get involved.
