Verdict

A BRIDGE TOO FAR was bought for £65,000 after scoring at Wetherby and though failing to follow up at Catterick he was conceding the winner a stone and it was a decent effort. He may just have too much pace on this ground for Cantlow, runner-up in a point-to-point and looking in need of three miles when beating Swingkeel at Ludlow. Solis did well to beat Exotic Man at Doncaster in January but didn't run as well on the same track earlier this month though he wasn't beaten far. That's Mine and The Musical Guy hail from powerful yards but will need to step-up greatly on what they produced on their debuts.
