Verdict

The form of LANDRAKE's debut could hardly be working out any better with the winner (Champion Bumper favourite) going in again since and while he was no match for the first two, he looks sure to improve from that experience. Madmansgame cost plenty after his recent point win and looks the obvious danger for the champion trainer. [Phill Anderson]
