Winning pointer BULFIN ISLAND can cap a successful day for the Alan King team by making a winning start to his career under Rules. Belmount is another recruit from the point-to-point field while Thedrinkymeister is sure to have learned plenty from last month's fifth here. He started favourite that day so can't be ignored. Wilberdragon, Danvinnie and Cresswell Breeze are all newcomers to note while Fingerscrossed showed promise at Warwick.
