Verdict

It's a while since PRESENT TO YOU got his head in front but he's dropped to a fair mark and has been placed at Towcester and Warwick in his last two starts. This looks a fairly straightforward task as none of his rivals arrive in any kind of form. Ballyvoneen won off a much higher mark over course and distance last April but he's barely raised a gallop in his last three runs, including when joint favourite at Musselburgh earlier this month. Neither That's Ben nor According To Them has managed a victory so far under Rules.
