ULSHAW BRIDGE showed improved form in August and September, finishing runner-up in a couple of turf handicaps and, returned to the all-weather for the first time since running well at this venue in 2019, James Fanshawe’s charge turned in his best effort of the season to end a lengthy losing sequence over this course and distance last month. That race has since received a couple of boosts, the runner-up and the sixth both going in subsequently, and up just 3lb for the victory, Ulshaw Bridge is taken to follow up.
It has been a while since TRIGGERED has stepped foot in the winners’ enclosure, but he has been shaping better than the bare results suggest this season and he took a definite step back in the right direction when second at Kempton last month. Making his all-weather debut, Triggered again ran credbly behind a rival who was all the rage in the betting, staying on to take second at the post, and there is every possibility that this track could suit his running style. He looks a good enough price to chance on his tapeta debut.
It took FROW a while to get off the mark, but once he got the hang of winning, he hasn’t looked like stopping. Frow followed up his maiden victory at Kempton with a couple of quick-fire successes at Wolverhampton, improving with each run to make it three victories in the space of eight days under a double penalty. He was upped 8lb for those victories, but he improved again to make it four wins on the spin at Wolverhampton last week, once again nicely on top at the line. He is much higher in the weight now than he was when this run started, but it still looks like we’ve still not seen the best of him, so he is difficult to oppose even under a penalty.
