PROVOST is a confident selection to see off Iceman George and Prince Golan. Mick Easterby's yard have had a couple of successes inside the last week and Provost landed some nice bets at the course a week ago. Frederick Tylicki is a more than capable pilot and with this race not attracting penalties, it would be no surprise to see him rattling up a sequence. Iceman George is stepped back up in trip. He stayed on well over an inadequate trip and as that had followed a sizeable absence, we'll chance that there is a bit more to come. Prince Golan was rated in the high 80's when trained by Kevin Ryan. He is back to a more realistic mark though has an obvious questionmark in light of the fibresand surface. General Tufto looked very useful earlier on in the season. Holly Hall cannot claim in this race and that has to be a negative. Ghufa won on his debut for George Baker having left Ed Dunlop. He was well held on his only visit to Southwell. Sularno looked to have lost his way after posting some impressive performances and might be best watched. Provost looks difficult to oppose this afternoon and we seek not to.
