Verdict

Hollow Tree hasn't run since May last year but would be in a different league to these if anywhere near fully wound-up. He won twice on the Flat before beating Countrywide Flame in a Grade 1 juvenile hurdle at Chepstow at the end of 2011 and this should bring him on for bigger tests in the spring. But GOGEO may have an edge in fitness today having won over 1m3f on the Flat here last month. He beat the useful War Poet over hurdles on only his second start under NH Rules so this longer trip shouldn't be a problem. Not much has gone right for Bob's World over hurdles this term but he's useful on his day and should at least make the frame if handling the surface.
