Verdict

Holywell was a progressive staying hurdler last season and finished a long way ahead of Ardkilly Witness over the smaller obstacles at Cheltenham in March. But he's been a big disappointment in two runs over fences so far and may need further than this nowadays. Jonjo O'Neill's charge is taken on again with the lightly-raced PROVO, who is unlikely to fail through lack of fitness and looked a chaser in the making in two runs over timber last year. Lamb Or Cod has won a Grade 3 over hurdles and is no mug. But he lacks consistency while Fourovakind has a preferred engagement at Towcester.
