We purchased Present Value from the Doncaster Goffs sales in May 2021 for £10,000. This big strong, good looking horse is just the type we like to buy and bid to turnaround.
Present Value looked high class as a youngster. Beaten just two lengths on debut by the classy Al Dancer then winning as he liked by seven lengths next time out at Chepstow. The smart, Hill Sixteen was in second place.
Things went wrong for Present Value when sent off favourite in a red hot Novice Chase at Newbury. Present Value fell and has only showed bits of form since.
If this type of horse was in good form going to the sales, they would fetch a six figure sum and be well out of reach for us.
We’ll take Present Value back to basics, turn over every stone and bid to get him feeling great. If we can get him back to his best, owners have a proper horse on their hands.
Present Value will be trained by Jamie Snowden.
