Present Man (Wincanton, 3.35) and Bryony Frost have proved to be an irresistible force on Badger Beers day in recent years and they may complete a stunning hat-trick in Saturday’s running of the Silver Trophy.
The combination produced a near perfect performance to win Saturday afternoon’s West Country feature 12 months ago, just a year on from delivering a marquee performance for the sponsors in 2017 when Frost was striving to make her mark.
The key to Present Man’s ascent in the ratings has been the way in which he attacks his fences with Frost on board. There is no reason why Present Man can’t repeat last year’s rhythm and precision on Saturday as his statistics following an absence of more than 150 days read 2-1-1-1.

Dangers abound with last year’s runner-up Sumkindofking respected with his stable bang in form, while Rock The Kasbah also boasts a terrific record fresh and seems to relish a flat, galloping track.
However, Present Man has had this race as his target and he is taken to complete the hat-trick for the Paul Nicholls stable which invariably targets this meeting.
