On The Bridge has won six of his last eight starts and finished second in the other two. He was impressive when scoring over a longer trip here last week following a lay-off and is short-list material again, despite a penalty. But CONELLIE had been off even longer before scoring at Ffos Las and could be the type to run up a sequence if that hasn't taken too much out of him. He's much preferred to stablemate My Lad Percy, who unseated his rider behind Get Home Now at Uttoxeter when on a hat-trick. Cardigan Island has been in good form over fences but Di Kaprio only won a seller at Uttoxeter and is a tricky ride. One Lucky Lady probably has enough weight but last year's winner Decoy can race off the same mark again and shouldn't be ignored while stablemate Bathwick Man is also a course and distance winner.
