Festive Jolly Wins at Kempton

Jollyallan provided a holiday winner for trainer Harry Fry as he continues his fantastic record with hurdlers this season.

Jollyallan is now 20-1 from 25-1 for the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, but while the trainer was keen to imply his JP McManus-owned gelding would stick to two miles, the raceday sponsor’s felt differently, offering 16-1 for the Neptune.

“Harry Fry suggested there was no need to step-up the trip for Jollyallan, but as bookmakers we think there could be a change of plan,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
