I love Presenting Percy and thought he’d win and got it wrong, but you just can’t cruise into a Gold Cup from last like that. Always tough running into the back of one or side stepping fallers. On form couldn’t have the winner at all, especially after how PP beat him last year.

Here are the 3 favourites...
- Presenting Percy
- Clan Des Obeaux
- Native River
Gold Cup stewards' report: "Davy Russell reported that Presenting Percy, which started favourite and finished eighth, was never travelling following an early mistake and his saddle had slipped mid-race"
As a Presenting Percy backer I was never happy after he clipped the second fence and ended a long way back. He had a troubled round thereafter & a very unconventional prep. Well done to Al Boum Photo but Percy had him well beat in the RSA 12 months ago. Bit gutted but always 2020
Still drying my eyes over Native River running out of steam. Truly thought he would do back to back Gold Cups. Never gave Presenting Percy a chance and rightly so didn’t even place. #CheltenhamFestival
No fault of his own but Presenting Percy ran the race he did due to the shitty prep he had. Connections thought they could just roll up and win the Gold Cup....even the way he was ridden suggested as much 🙅🏻♂️
@itvracing@CheltenhamRaces@WillieMullinsNH Don't think this horse was even mentioned as being in the running, all I heard was Presenting Percy, Clans de OBeaux and Native River as being the ones to back!!! Well done to the winning horse Al Boum Photo
@mp_horseracing probably any price you like. presenting percy did well to win the rsa last year but shows that another year, another story, al boum photo completely reversing the result. yala enki one of those nice horses who people don't consider but very consistent.
#Cheltenham #Horse_Racing_Betting Bells ringing out for Mullins in the Gold Cup?: It’s Christmas Day for National Hunt racing fans on Friday, as the likes of Presenting Percy, Clan Des Obeaux and Native River battle it out for the 2019 Cheltenham… https://t.co/V8rPyBYIYk
PRESENTING PERCY THE STORY OF THE DAY. PEOPLE WERE TIPPING THIS HORSE TO WIN THIS RACE EASILY AND WIN OTHER BIG RACES. DID NT EVEN MAKE THE FRAME. 4/1 A BIG PRICE CONSIDERING MOST OF THE FAVS WON YESTERDAY. THE BOOKIES HAD TO TTAKE THE MONEY FOR SOMETHING.
Hard to read into Early Door's run behind apples jade because of the distance, but he was ahead of Bapaume who went onto finish less than 2L behing presenting percy,3rd in the martin pipe last year shows the track wont be an issue ground is also fine
For those knockers of Presenting Percy in the Gold Cup your all on the backlash bandwagon.
Had Presenting Percy won or was even placed you would be claiming It as a marvelous training performance. Stop crying over spilt milk, you gambled and this time you lost.
@Adam1999a I won 900 but the horses I thought would win lost presenting Percy and Kalashnikov they were my bankers I must have had 40 bets on the both of them everytime I won a bet the odd 20 quid went on them from April so yeah pretty deflated mate but the 900 goes away for next year
Presenting Percy simply never got into the race and didn’t jump and in my opinion was due to a lack of fencing experience this year. Definitely a wasted season for connections. Disappointing I hope he gets a proper prep next year, would be a big player.
@racehorsetips anyone who backed Presenting Percy and then complains over a lack of a prep run over fences should fuck off. They got odds that reflected all this. Prep run would have shortened up had it ran well.
@TrendHorses@WillHillRacing I guess that is 0-52 now Andrew, what a strange prep for the Gold Cup favourite Presenting Percy, I wonder why he didn't have a run over fences, something must have been wrong at some point ?
