Pontefract Tip: Holmeswood

Record since being gelded is 41114. Best with a bit of cut underfoot and has been running consistently big speed ratings.

Holmeswood was hugely progressive in the second half of last season, the catalyst was being gelded. Since then he’s finished 41114, running fast times in both victory and defeat.

The stand-out performance on the clock was his win at Ripon, where he earned an adjusted sectional speed rating of 96 in similar conditions to which he faces at Pontefract.

Holmeswood acts with a bit of cut in the ground, which is probably why he’s out early and is at his best over the minimum trip of 5f. A wide draw isn’t ideal but the 4-year-old easily looks a triple-figure sprint handicapper.
