Holywell On The Gold Cup Trail

Holywell was an easy winner of the Ivan Straker Memorial Chase at Kelso this afternoon and William Hill reacted with a slight trim to 12-1 from 14-1.


“Holywell’s biggest challenge was the obstacles and he’s prepared himself well for a potential tilt at the Gold Cup,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
