Verdict

BALLINSLEA BRIDGE finally got his head in front at Market Rasen last month. He will have no problem here with the extra furlong and Fergus Gregory’s claim takes care of his penalty so he can hold off Sedgefield runner-up Henry’s Joy, who has the beating of another recent Sedgefield second – Le Drapeau – on collateral form. Point-to-point and bumper winner Truckers Lodge is almost certainly better than he showed when favourite at Wetherby on his hurdles bow and Secret Legacy, alongside the eventual winner when falling at the last at Leicester, also adds to the interest.
