Verdict

Richard Johnson knows how to get the best out of his mother's The Last Bridge, who won for the second time over course and distance two weeks ago. He'll be staying on when others have cried enough and may be capable of confirming running with Comical Red, despite less favourable terms. Thedeboftheyear got back to winning ways at Wincanton last month and is only 3lb higher while Keep The Cash could be interesting trying a further step up in trip. TARADREWE is another who should thrive over a longer distance and she might be a bit of value in this given she's only managed one place so far in five starts over timber. Frontier Vic hasn't raced since November but could also figure if fully wound-up.
