Henok is better than he's shown so far this season and would be interesting if attracting market support. Man Of Leisure has been knocking on the door but has gone up 3lb since finishing second to Admiral Blake at Taunton while South Stack is also creeping up the weights despite not winning, though was taking on better opposition at Wincanton last month. Josh's Dreamway is a course and distance winner and was just beaten in a jumper's bumper at Wolverhampton in January. She might enjoy a fitness advantage of Definite Dream while there are also possibilities about Tolkeins Tango and Dark Energy. But, in an open race, we are expecting a big run from PRESENTING ARMS. He's been steadily finding his feet over hurdles and there's every chance this step up in trip will bring about further improvement.
