Neil Mulholland continued his great run of form with a winner at Southwell ahead of his crack at the big Kingmaker Novices Chase at Warwick on Saturday with Fox Norton.

The Ulster-born trainer, now based near Bath, was on target with Pass The Time in the Handicap at the Nottinghamshire venue yesterday, Liam Keniry in the saddle.

"Thankfully the winners are still coming in. We have had five winners in the last fortnight (before yesterday) which is great," said Mulholland, who is shaping up well for Cheltenham.

"Pass The Time ran well at Doncaster (when fourth last month). She has won before over course and distance."

He added: "We had two runners at Fakenham (on Monday)where we had a first and a second. The second was Leeside Lady who got beaten by a head which was a bit unlucky but half an hour earlier Halo Moon crossed the line eased down to land his third win in the space of a fortnight which was fantastic.

"A few days earlier Harley Rebel won at Chepstow, he had to work hard for it but he is a little star. He will always give you what you ask for and more, he loves racing and thankfully he has an engine as well."
