FOL HOLLOW won a similar selling race at Redcar last month and this looks no tougher. Well beaten in a handicap at Thirsk last week, this is more his level these days. Angelo Poliziano is weighted to reverse running with the selection but he's failed to figure in four subsequent runs so Northern Bolt makes more appeal at the weights on his earlier second at Thirsk. The remainder have plenty to find on today's terms and are hard to fancy as a consequence.
