Couple of write ups on the Middleham Park Racing website.

Fol serves up a potent 59 second dish of speed

Having won in comfortable fashion at Beverley on Wednesday under Adele Mulrennen, Fol Hollow was sent chasing a few thousand euros this afternoon. Under a very positive Adrian Nicholls ride, the race again went perfectly to plan. Given a lead by the listed performer Osterhase, Fol took over at halfway and continued to power along. Challenged strongly in the final furlong by the Jim Bolger trained second favourite, Fol fought on tenaciously, staying on well to get his head back in front near the line, winning going away. We do not know where we will go next but he is surely one to folhollow for the foreseeable future until he is beaten. He could still have a bit in hand of the handicapper given that his time of 59 secs was a little faster than the winner of the listed race run earlier in the card

•Fabulous Fol scores first time up

Fol Hollow put his rivals to the sword in the feature race at Beverley on Wednesday. He was coming into form at the back end of last season and he carried that form through to his seasonal debut with a pillar to post victory. He was the 3rd of our horses with Dandy to score first time up this term and continues our cracking start to the year. He'll take the trip over to Ireland on Saturday to try and follow up under a penalty.
