High Bridge heading for Newbury
High Bridge will run at Newbury and not Exeter this weekend.

Ben Pauling's Cheltenham Festival hopeful will put his credentials on the line in a novice event at the Berkshire track on Saturday, rather than clash with Finian's Oscar in a Listed race on Sunday.
Sixth in the Champion Bumper last season, High Bridge is unbeaten in two runs over hurdles this campaign.
"He's going to go to Newbury," said Pauling. "He'll have a double penalty there, which isn't ideal, but if he's a Supreme horse he should be able to do it.
"I think the Supreme and not the Neptune is the way we are thinking at the moment."
