Verdict

Hohlethelonely has come right back to form in recent weeks, scoring at Exeter and Huntingdon. He's still not badly treated on his best form and will make a bold bid to complete the hat-trick with Harry Challoner taking off 7lb again. We'll oppose him, however, with FIDDLEDEDEE who probably has more scope. Jonjo O'Neill's mare got off the mark over this trip at Uttoxeter in October and can defy a 7lb rise in the weights against similar opposition. Eldred makes his reappearance over a new trip but can't be discounted while What An Oscar won at Perth and Hereford in the autumn. Joan D'Arc didn't beat much at Fakenham, however, and Spinning Waters and Thoresby are proving hard to win with over timber.
