The 20-1 shot won last year’s Edinburgh National from a 1lb lower handicap mark and now has the blinkers which may have been needed last season
There will be plenty of cheering for Present Man and Bryony Frost as they attempt to win the Badger Ales Trophy for a second successive year but the horse had had a prep run last year and carried less than 11 stone, thanks to the presence of higher-rated rivals. This time he is top-weight at Wincanton and might find one or two getting away from him.
A chance is taken at 20-1 on Dancing Shadow (3.35), who won last year’s Edinburgh National from a 1lb lower handicap mark and now has the blinkers which may have been needed last season. A sound surface is fine for him and he had a wind op over the summer.
