Brother to the top-class Presenting Percy shaped nicely on debut when third in decent Naas maiden hurdle in February but very disappointing in similar Fairyhouse contest in April; bounced back with creditable second to an all-the-way winner in Downpatrick bumper last month; ideally wants further than 2m but major player on what he's shown so far.

Brother to Presenting Percy was promising third in Naas maiden on debut and runner-up in Downpatrick bumper penultimate start; odds-on when fourth in Down Royal maiden last month but allowances have to be made after saddle slipped and jockey lost irons; this looks the weakest race he has contested and won't get a better opportunity.
