Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - BUCKERS BRIDGE has to firmly put his Drinmore flop behind him but that was simply too bad to be true. If a horse wasn't one hundred per cent, the remorseless gallop of Arvika Ligeonniere would expose any flaw that day, so hopefully the real, previously unbeaten, Buckers Bridge will turn up on this occasion. Two miles and deep ground should bring about the best in the Pelder gelding and he's preferred to Mikael D'Haguenet. He's the one to beat, but you still wouldn't be dead-certain about his jumping and he's likely to be a skimpy enough price. Whodoyouthink would surely ideally be more suited by better ground whilst the other three are hardly good enough.
