In depth

Verdict

Holdenhurst finally won a handicap when beating Distant Applause a short-head at Kempton and an apprentice’s allowance negates a rise in the weights. But ALWAYS AMAZING (NAP) has tumbled 13lb down the weights since switching yards in November and a recent neck defeat at Wolverhampton suggests that’s enough to see Derek Shaw’s charge get his head back in front. Invisible Storm also went close at Wolverhampton last time and can figure while At Your Service finished in front of previous winner Billyoakes when runner-up at Lingfield and could be thereabouts again.
