Verdict

Since getting off the mark over fences at Southwell in January, HOLLO LADIES has been campaigned without success in Graded company, so a return to this level will come as a relief. Ferdy Murphy has a good strike rate at this track and his six-year-old chaser is just preferred to Film Festival. The latter cut little ice in the Grand Annual at Cheltenham last month but got the better of previous winner Sir Tantallus Hawk at Doncaster before that and looks to have every chance. Benny Be Good has won over these fences and is not out of this, while Flying Doctor has place claims judged on his best form.
