There is nothing to choose between HOLLOW PENNY and Until Winning on their run together at Bangor last month. The former beat the latter by seven lengths but is now 7lb worse off. However, we're taking Alan King's four-year-old to confirm the form as he hadn't had a recent run prior to that race whereas the runner-up had. De La Bech is probably the other worthy of a mention as he has hinted at ability this term and was a better horse between the flags than Itoldyou.
