Hoolie backed to blow away Fontwell rivals
WEST BAY HOOLIE, pulled up when sent off at 6-1 on his handicap debut last time, has been backed to put his disappointing Newton Abbot run behind him at Fontwell this afternoon.
The Helen Nelmes-trained seven-year-old has been off the track since August but the market has spoken in his favour for the 2m4f handicap chase (3.10) with his odds cut to 4-1 (from 12-1).
The Racing Post Spotlight verdict for West Bay Hoolie, written by Stuart Redding, reads: "He recorded a couple of decent RPRs in fair Exeter novices in April; now has cheekpieces back on and any market support would be worth noting."
In the following race there has been a similar move for the Caroline Keevil-trained General Girling, who has been punted into 5-1 (from 16) with BetVictor for his first run in 160 days in the 2m4f handicap hurdle.
