FOL HOLLOW has been a decent sprinter in his heyday and, in some ways, it's disappointing to see him operating at this lowly level. He does, however, retain a decent level of ability and can notch here in the belief that he'll be ready for his seasonal reappearance. He would certainly be good enough if reproducing the level of his Ayr second last term in a competitive 22-runner handicap. He won't have it all his own way though as both Angelo Poliziano and Master Of Disguise, both of whom enjoy the advantage of assured fitness, are proving capable and consistent performers at their chosen level. The latter is nominated as the main threat to the selection. Oldjoesaid is also on the downgrade these days but could still give a decent account.
