PRESENT MAN LANDS LISTED CONTEST
14 November 2017
Tattersalls Ireland Derby National Hunt Sale graduatePRESENT MAN (IRE) trumped in a very competitive renewal of the Listed Badger
Ales Trophy Handicap Chase at Wincanton on Saturday. The seven-year-old gelding
was a winner of the bumper on the same card in 2014. PRESENT MAN (IRE) and
Final Nudge (IRE) gave a thrilling display in the final stages of the race but
it was PRESENT MAN (IRE) who came out on top to win by a head.
The Kenneth Parkhill-bred gelding is a son of the late Glenview Stud
sire Presenting and he is a half-brother to the Grade 2 winner Caim Hill (IRE).
He was purchased by Eoin Doyle for €42,000 in 2014. PRESENT MAN (IRE)
previously won at Grade 2 level and he is entered into the Group 3 Ladbrokes
Trophy Chase at Newbury in December.
