Houndscourt was second over course and distance in March and filled the same spot at Stratford in April before disappointing at Ffos Las last time. He's the clear form pick but BALINDERRY is sure to have learned plenty from his run over a trip much too short at Market Rasen in May and Steve Golling's charge may represent better value. Wincanton third Church Hall doesn't appear to be improving but Speckled Door has to be worth a second look having won a couple of point-to-points already.
