Verdict
It is interesting connections have reverted back to hurdling for BRIDGE NATIVE but it could be a smart move given the confidence she has been showing recently over fences. She does have some ability over hurdles despite her sole win coming a long time ago. The relatively lightly-raced Reine Fee finished runner-up in this contest last year and advertised his well being with a decent effort at Fairyhouse in December. If still in the same mood she should give a good account of herself. Saol Iontach put in one of her better efforts last time out at Punchestown and a repeat of that effort could see her running a big race.
