Juniper made all over 3m at Warwick but didn’t look as though she wanted to go much further and an 8lb rise may have scuppered prospects of a double. BALLYCAMUS won a point as a four-year-old and has always looked a chaser in the making, despite winning over hurdles at Hereford in March. He is the one with most scope as Forward Plan, also a winner between the flags, has been a big disappointment under Rules so far.
