ROMANTIC BRIDGE can be another winner for the Tim Vaughan yard with both Brize Nortan and Mylo posing as the main dangers. The selection caught the eye on his first run for her new connections finishing second to Mr Robert in a novice event at Worcester last month. She looks more than capable of winning off her current mark and although she failed to win off it when trained by David Arbuthnot she seems to have improved for her change of scenery and with that in mind she is worth staying on the right side of. Brize Norton has fallen dramatically down the weights this summer but then ran a race right back to near his best at Bangor last time out finishing second to Arctic Shadow. With only two more pounds to carry this time around he still looks potentially well treated so any market support should be noted. Mylo ran well for todays rider at Uttoxeter on his latest outing finishing a decent second to Openide. His jockey is able to claim a valuable ten pounds off his back so he is another to add to the short list. Romatic Bridge has improved and is still unexposed and takes preference.
