Captain Drake became our third bumper winner in the past five days with a resolute success in testing conditions at Towcester on Thursday under Mike Legg.

All three of them are really nice prospects and should give their owners plenty to dream about over the summer.

Captain Drake is a fine, big chasing type we bought at the sales in December a month or so after he finished a good second on his debut in a point-to-point in Ireland.

We were in no rush with Captain Drake who has been giving us the right signals at home and shaping like a galloper.

That is why we took him to Towcester which has such a stiff finish. He travelled strongly in a hood, was clear heading round the final bend and though idling in front found more than enough to hold the persistent challenge of J’ai Froid.

The pair drew a long way clear in the closing stages which is encouraging for the future.

Captain Drake will now have a nice summer break before returning to Seaborough for a campaign over hurdles when we will be stepping him up in trip.
