Verdict

This will be a new experience for Bridge That Gap, who has done all his racing on the Polytrack so far. He just failed to land a hat-trick when second at Lingfield last time and is preferred to Going Grey, who was all out to score at Newcastle on his latest start. Curly Come Home regressed after scoring at Yarmouth last June when TAFAWUK finished third. The latter hasn't raced since but Richard Hughes rides on his return which suggests a big run is expected. He gets the vote with last season's race-fit Redcar winner Tenhoo looking the biggest threat ahead of Tawseef.
