Betting Tip: Holywell @ 2/1 with williamhill

HOLYWELL was a hugely impressive of a Grade 1 novice chase over this trip at last year’s meeting and, having run right up to his best when fourth in the Cheltenham Gold Cup last time, he’s fancied to repeat the trick under Tony McCoy. You could argue the eight-year-old had a hard race at Cheltenham, but he’s a horse who always saves a bit for himself and he comes alive at this time of year and when fitted with headgear. The big danger, according to the betting, is last year’s winner Silviniaco Conti but he’s hard to fancy after his no-show in the Gold Cup and he may be feeling the effects of a long season – his trainer Paul Nicholls might disagree of course! I see the 2013 runner-up and this season’s Charlie Hall winner Menorah as a bigger danger, with his trainer’s decision to skip Cheltenham meaning he’ll be a fresh horse.
