Verdict

Placed twice in bumpers, including once here, Liosduin Bhearna is interesting switching to hurdles on softer going. A lengthy absence isn’t a concern for Sudden Destination given connections while jockey bookings suggest Chuffy Chuffnell is preferred to stablemate My Turgeon. Bbold wasn’t given a hard time when third at Warwick but CAPTAIN DRAKE makes more appeal. Following a third at Aintree, he didn’t quite get home at Warwick but that latter form has been franked.
