Verdict

Bullock Harbour hasn't done as well as expected over fences but his overall form puts him in the picture along with He's Our Man, who looked very progressive when scoring at Limerick, and Hidden Future, an easy winner at Naas last month. CANALY beat Terminal over the course and distance in December and returned to winning ways with a battling victory over Belle Brook at Clonmel. He has plenty of weight and will find the consistent Castle Wings a tough nut to crack but this should prove within his capabilities.
