Broken my post cheltenham promise not to bet until jan 1st 2019 . Pat Kelly has one race in mind for this horse according  to those in the know at rossie last night. 6\1 is well worth a punt at this moment in time top up as the others fall away , it wont be 6\1 on the 15th march 2019 and you can still lay it off for profit

I love an ante post but this doesn’t excite me at 6/1. There are only three possible winners on form at the moment and Presenting Percy is a good stone behind 2 of them at the moment. I’d expect him to close the gap by March but if they all run he’d be around the 3/1 or 7/2 if they all lined up.
With 9 months to go it’s not great value in my opinion.

Interesting Hibore. there are other factors which probably cancel each other out. Cant see Native River coming back unless its the same ground, which is unlikely. I personally don't think mite bite likes Cheltenham. So it leaves itself open to an improver and most punters look immediately at the RSA . Kelly is a very astute trainer and the number of runs he puts into presenting percy, one of which I am assured will be over hurdles , between now and next march,  will signal the strength of his intention .

Kelly is very astute and Presenting Percy is a very exciting Novice. I just think the price has been squeezed to the maximum already..6/1 for a horse that has to prove itself against it's peers let alone get to Cheltenham in one piece. I would like at least 10/1 at this stage.
Regarding NR he'll definitely run in the race and is a tough nut to crack whatever the going and Might Bite's best ever rating was this years Gold Cup. Backing all three at about 5/2 could be the way forward ?
