Bridge doesn't show "Open in Camera Raw" for some ARW files with July upgrade

Bridge and Camera Raw updated last week on my system. Now I have to open Bridge two or three times before it will show thumbnails of my Sony raw ARW files. Even more annoying is that when I right click on some ARW files the option to "Open in camera raw does not appear". There seems to be no rhyme or reason for it. Even with images taken within seconds of each other, one will show the option and the next will not. Not only that, but files that did show "Open in Camera Raw" in one session will not show the option in another session. The ARW files are generated by a Sony RX10 iii and I have been using Bridge to edit them for over a year. This behavior has only begun this week after the latest update. This is extremely annoying and is completely disrupting my workflow. The files will open into Photoshop via Camera Raw.

Is there a way to go back to the previous version of Bridge and Camera Raw?

Some further information. I found that I could reinstall Bridge 2017 which I did. Using that version of Bridge I have no problem with the disappearing option to "Open in Camera Raw" or getting raw thumbnails to show up. That pretty much tells me that it is the new version of Bridge that is the problem.

I recently posted on this same problem -- in my case consecutive JPG files, one of which shows "Open in RAW" option on rt. click, and the next does not. In this particular folder there 127 files, but only 10 which did not offer the "Open in Camera Raw" option, and in sequence they were in the middle of the folder.

As suggested in my case, I tried re-setting my RAW preferences but problem persisted. I've just now tried the solution offered above by Avinash, but no change. My Adobe RAW version is 11.1.1.185.
