A very attractive strong gelding who has shown good form in his Irish point to points and who should have a bright future.
Present Flight is by champion sire Presenting, sire of Denman, War Of Attrition, China Rock, Niche Market and Grand National winner Balabriggs. See more about him here: http://rathbarrystud.com/stallions/national-hunt/presenting/
His dam Grangeclare Flight is a bumper winner, and a sister to bumper/useful 2m-2m4f hurdle winner Grangeclare Lark, bumper/2m hurdle winner Classic Vic. Her pedigree goes back to the useful 2m-3m jumper Scarthy Lad & 2m/3m hurdle winner Datokepe.
Present Flight was third then a close second in his Irish point to points earning a rating of 90. In what was described as an above average heat, the winner and Present Flight drew clear of the remainder of the field and the point to point website commented, 'Present Flight, a fine third on his debut at Bartlemy last season, looked somewhat in need of the outing & his performance in really putting it up to the winner then becomes all the more commendable'
Present Flight arrived in the yard in January 2014 and he was second in his bumper on debut for us. He then ran over hurdles but was disappointing and in the summer of 2015 he had a wind operation.
Present Flight won on his chase debut at Kelso in October 2015. He is suited by good ground and three miles.
