Albert Bridge didn't jump very well on his debut at Kempton but is probably capable of better as he was a decent stayer on the Flat. Minority Interest was only beaten a short-head on his hurdling debut over track and trip in December but was under pressure when unseating his rider two out here next time in a race in which Freddy Q led for a long way until fading to finish fifth, ahead of Spartilla and Saint Helena. Rouquine Sauvage has won a bumper but Wasabi was beaten a long way when third at Fakenham. CIVIL WAR hasn't done a lot wrong so far and was sent off favourite for a jumpers' bumper at Kempton last week - he can gain an overdue win today.
