Copper Knight could be the one on Saturday back at his beloved York.

Timeform on Bay Bridge
NAP: Progressive Bay Bridge can win again
Bay Bridge had some strong juvenile form last year and has shown much improved form upped to middle distances this season, winning with plenty in hand at Newcastle on return and following up again in grand style on handicap debut at Newbury last time. The handicapper has hit him with a 15 lb rise in the weights for that success, but connections clearly feel he is still feasibly treated, and he can record a hat-trick before moving up in class.
NEXT BEST: Wootton'sun can open his account
Wootton'sun was an expensive purchase as a yearling and has improved with each run so far this season, still looking rough around the edges when finishing third at Ayr on his latest start. He didn't quicken immediately when asked but when he did find his stride he stayed on with purpose to take third, leaving the impression he still has more to offer. An opening mark of 74 looks lenient and he makes plenty of appeal now handicapping.
EACH WAY: Copper Knight hard to keep out of the places
Copper Knight is a six-time winner at York and has arguably proved as good as ever this season, wasting no time getting back to form when a narrow second to Mondammej at Haydock last time. The trip is a slight question mark - first try over six furlongs - but he will again prove a tough nut to pass at this venue if getting into a good rhythm on the front end.
