This comet still looks interesting, it's currently brighter than expected and could reach mag +3.0 in June, more optimistic sites are going for mag +2.0  Smiley, would be nice to get a bright comet near NLCs. It is a new Oort cloud comet though so it will be very unpredictable and could slow down it's rate of brightening at the crucial moment, fingers crossed it puts on a good show.
