Holden keeps up the gallop as race wins continue early in the season

Ballyhale trainer Ellmarie Holden has started the new jumps season like gangbusters and saddled her fourth winner already this campaign when the Rachael Blackmore-ridden Look Closer landed the Follow Us On Twitter Rated Novice Hurdle at Cork on Friday.

The son of Danehill Dancer had won over course and distance at Easter and repeated it in this stiffer test.

Three good jumps in the straight settled it as he held off the staying on Little Folke by three-parts-of-a-length.
