Verdict

HOLYWELL was a cut above these over timber and won the the Pertemps Final at Cheltenham back in March. A reasonably proficient display of jumping should see him come out best on his chasing debut. There's not much between Many Clouds and Knock In Hand over hurdles but the latter has been well beaten in a couple of previous starts over the larger obstacles. Supreme Asset has won a couple of novice events over timber and he makes more appeal than Walkabout Creek on his first start over fences as his dam is related to top-class chaser Albertas Run.
