Fol defies the weights to score again
Looking at the form book, you could not have backed Fol Hollow today at Beverley today, as he was meeting many of his rivals from his previous Beverley victory but at much worse terms, giving some of his opponents nearly a stone in weight. But this year MPR horses seem to know that we are aiming for 50 victories, and they are putting in that bit extra to win their races rather than being placed. Fol was not drawn ideally in 3 but, with the defection of a couple of horses, he found himself drawn only 4 from the favoured Beverley rail. Adrian helped Fol to break superbly and he found himself on the pace with some of his rivals over 6 lengths down after a furlong. The writing was on the wall at this stage as there is not many horses who can give Fol a lead and then peg him back over 5 furlongs. When pressed by the Kevin Ryan trained favourite, Fol lengthened again to put his rival to the sword. Fol Hollow has now chalked up 3 wins this season already and has treated his owners to win in the UK and Ireland, what a terrific horse to be involved with. Lookout for him following up with another victory at the weekend.
