In depth

Verdict

Presented is still a maiden under Rules but has gone close on a couple of occasions. However, he was well beaten when third under similar conditions at Taunton last time. SALUT HONORE is a real mudlark, as he showed when winning by a wide margin at Uttoxeter on New Year's Eve. He's getting weight form his four rivals and can follow up here with the in-form Dunkelly Castle yet to prove himself on heavy going and Double Dash trying 3m for the first time under a welter burden. Itoldyou has won between the flags and was thrown in at the deep end on his chasing debut but may need more time.
