SUPREME PRESENT was pulled up on her hurdles bow but made no mistake at Worcester last month under A P McCoy, who had also partnered her to victory in a jumpers' bumper at Lingfield in February. She might be one to follow over the summer and can get the better of Handmaid here, though Peter Bowen's easy Bangor scorer is still respected and makes more appeal than Queen Olivia who is a lot more exposed. Oleohneh was never travelling well at Wetherby last month and has something to find with Sureness on that run - she may need more time.
