Verdict

Alan Hill produced the useful Harbour Court, who runs in the next, to win this last year and SHARP SUIT can follow suit. He showed promise in hurdles but has really come into his own since starting out on the point-to-point circuit and is unbeaten in four starts. Alskamatic looks the danger on his victory in a novices' hunter chase at Exeter earlier this month as Blazing Whale was beaten in a maiden at Leicester on his latest start under Rules. Squirrel Esquire tackles regulation fences for the first time but is less exposed than most of others and could sneak into the frame.
