A Present From The Bookmakers?

Jockies return from racing at Cheltenham Racecourse day 1 of The Festival, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

I have little doubt that the Ben Pauling trained Not At Present is potentially well-handicapped ahead of the 3.10pm at Taunton this afternoon, but can he put that to good use today? The winner of four starts over hurdles and rated 123 in that sphere, the son of top sire Presenting was switched to fences in July 2022 where he was an acceptable second of three at Bangor over two and a half miles.

Off for 543 days after that he reappeared at Newbury off a rating off 117 where he ran too freely too early before weakening from a long way out and falling when beaten four fences from home. Dropped 2lb by the handicapper for that he is entitled to be considerably fitter now and is related to plenty of decent chasers, and with the step back up to close to three miles in his favour, he may be able to dominate from the start in this small field.
