Fol Hollow finally gets his head in front

Fol Hollow as I have previously said is a consistent sort and his followers were rewarded on Saturday when he won the Class 2 handicap at Thirsk over 5f in a time of 58.11s at odds of 8/1. The handicapper has had him on this sort of mark (93) for a while and although he is always thereabouts it has been a little while since he won and it is likely he will be raised a few pounds for this. He hadnt run too well earlier in the week at York behind some of his rivals in this race but that may have been a pipe opener for this, who knows ? His trainer now says that he will be aimed at the 6f handicap at Epsom on Derby Day as opposed to the Dash which he has run in for the last 2 seasons.
Captain Dunne who wore the first colours of the Middleham syndicate finished 2nd and his early season target is reportedly the Temple stakes next weekend at Haydock.
Jargelle finished 3rd after showing very quick speed to get to the rail from her outside draw wearing a first time tongue strap. If he showed this speed in the Dash you could see him going close in that.
Jaconet couldnt get to the front this time and for her this race may have come too soon after York.
