Verdict

WINGED LEADER rarely runs a bad race and this looks a good opportunity for him to finally get off the mark at the racecourse proper. The six-year-old has won his last two starts in point-to-points with his most recent win coming in February: If continuing his fine form he may be hard to beat. The main danger looks to be Samurai Cracker who has good racecourse experience and is another who rarely lets down his supporters in terms of effort. The form of Mr Cosmos does not spring off the page but he quietly won a point-to-point last time and is one to note in the market.
  1. Winged Leader
  2. Samurai Cracker
  3. Mr Cosmos
