Owner Philip Reynolds has confirmed his star chaser Presenting Percy will be trained by Gordon Elliott this season, after being moved from Pat Kelly’s yard.

The nine-year-old is a dual Cheltenham Festival winner, having supplemented his victory in the 2017 Pertemps Final with a brilliant display in the 2018 RSA Chase that saw him move to the head of ante-post lists for the following year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup.

However, Presenting Percy raced just once prior to his bid for Gold Cup glory – winning the Galmoy Hurdle at Gowran Park – and finished a disappointing eighth in the blue riband, after which he was diagnosed with a back problem.

The son of Sir Percy ran four times without winning last term – most recently falling two fences from home in the Gold Cup – and Reynolds feels the time has come to move Presenting Percy and the other seven horses he had in training with Kelly to other yards.

“It has been a very difficult decision, but now is the right time for a change,” said Reynolds.

“Pat and I remain friends and I will be forever grateful to him.

“The horses will go to a few guys who already train for me, with Presenting Percy joining Gordon.”
