Moth ID: White-point

I have had several Clays this year, and when I saw this moth it struck me that it was its similar rare (in these parts) confusion species, White-point. My photos are so bad, that I may find it hard to make a convincing case. Then again, they may be good enough to make a chump of me. What do you think, mothers, White-point or Clay?
STOP PRESS: The experts on Cammoths have confirmed that this moth is indeed a White-point, which has been recorded in good numbers apparently this year in Cambs. I believe there have also been a couple of VC32 (northants) records this year.
