In depth

Verdict

LUCKY SUNNY has never won over hurdles but has won a bumper and twice over fences. He's rated 5lb lower than over the larger obstacles and should be good enough to take this. Hold The Bucks has been in good form but will have to defy a further 7lb rise if he's to complete the hat-trick while Kaki Island is 3lb higher than when second at Chepstow. Bedouin Bay also still looks too high in the weights and may need a bit further.
