HOLDENHURST won at Bath in July and returned from a short break with another victory at Wolverhampton. He’s been raised a further 3lb but drops down a grade and Bill Turner’s grey can go in again. True Belief is penalised for winning a maiden at Windsor but Olaudah is back on the same mark as when successful at Wolverhampton during the summer. Lordsbridge Boy can do better back in this lower grade and the unpredictable Papa Delta can figure if in the mood.
