A tricky puzzle to solve as On The Bridge, successful at Fontwell and Newton Abbot last month, was due to run over fences at Worcester yesterday. It took Ffos Las scorer Miracle House 24 starts to break his duck while Wheres The Hare was very disappointing at Southwell in July. Quiet Whisper has also gone off the boil and Dancing Dude has been well below par this year while Minella Bliss and Ironical usually find one too good and it's more than two years since Mzuri Bay was last in the winner's enclosure. Pairc Na Gcapall seem to like it here but is a little one-paced and Trackmate looks too high in the weights so we'll take a chance on LUCKY LUKEY, who is worth another chance over 3m this season and is certainly well enough handicapped if he lasts home.
