Verdict

Jim Bowie has never won over fences and his best recent efforts have been over hurdles. Hidden Present hasn't won a race since 2011 yet is still higher in the weights while winning point-to-pointer Monks Return is still a maiden under Rules. It's hard to know what Hero De Villeneuve is doing at the head of the weights so, in a poor contest, PRESWELL LAD is given the nod. He landed a Tramore handicap last January, the last time he was on this sort of mark over fences, and his rider's claim can see him home.
