I would bet on the 720 of Bob Minor
Incidentally, Snowdon on p91 of his book 'Ropesight' says:
"The two peals given above are produced without the use of singles, and
contain a smaller number of bobs than any peals yet composed on this plan;
the second is only the reverse variation of the first peal"

This refers to a 5 part by Henry Hubbard. I don't know of one by John Holt
but I infer from Snowdon that there had been other peals on this plan
