Trainer Paul Nicholls is aiming to secure a 10th victory in the Badger Beers Silver Trophy Handicap Chase at Wincanton on Saturday.
The 11-time British jump racing Champion Trainer is going in double-handed for Saturday's race, with Present Man and Give Me A Copper both expected to mount serious challenges.
Present Man has provided Nicholls with his two most recent victories in the race and he will be bidding to become the first horse to register a hat-trick of wins in the event this weekend.
Give Me A Copper has always threatened to be a good horse, although injuries have held up his progress, but Nicholls feels both of his challengers are in good condition ahead of Saturday's race.
"Present Man has won the last two - and he looks amazing," said Nicholls. "He worked well on Thursday morning. I suspect Present Man is fully wound up, compared to Give Me A Copper."
The trainer added regarding Give Me A Copper: "If it is on the easier side of good that will be perfect for him. I just think he wants a flat track, and that is the key for him, but I think he just might come on for the run."
