Verdict

Akorakor scored easily between the flags in March then landed the champion point-to-point bumper at Fairyhouse the following month. He could be useful though is no certainty to see off his stablemate THE DOORMAN, who made a very encouraging debut behind MInella Foryou at Lemonfield and is handed the vote. Is Love Alive scrambled home in a point-to-point in May but Aidan O'Brien's Noah Webster should make a hurdler and is one to note on his debut.
