Verdict

An intriguing affair with the vote in favour of 7-y-o CAPTAIN DRAKE. He ended last season with a good second in the Midlands National and posted a career-best display when successful on return over hurdles at Uttoxeter in October. Unexposed over marathon trips, he's expected to go well in refitted cheekpieces. Discorama and last year's winner West Approach head the dangers.

  1. CAPTAIN DRAKE (IRE)
  2. DISCORAMA (FR)
