1.5 pts win PRESENT MAN 12/1( almost everywhere)
1.5 pts win WHATS HAPPENING 14/1 ( almost everywhere)
Bet 365 Gold Cup

Though he's yet to race at this venue Present Man's prominent racing style will not compromise his chance and he has an excellent record going right handed. He has his ground and arrives here in great heart and with the profile of one who has more to offer. Jack Sherwood has built up an excellent rapport with him, winning 4 from 6, and there ain't too much to dislike about his chance.

What's Happening was developing into a smart handicap chaser until a setback kept him off the track for 16 months. He reappeared in February running a cracker at Exeter then ran a little better than his finishing position suggests when 11th in the Kim Muir, being on the tail of the leaders until turning into the straight. He's better than that and could run a very big race.

Lost - 3 pts
