Ever Present, four year old son of Elusive Pimpernel made it a winning debut in the Bumper over 2 miles at Punchestown yesterday for Trainer Jessica Harrington and Owner Anamoine Limited under Jockey Mikey McGuane. Bred by Windflower Overseas Holdings Ltd., he is a homebred of Mrs Patino who owns and bred his sire Elusive Pimpernel.
Racing Post analysis; An interesting bumper, the winner showed a good attitude and a decent turn of foot.
EVER PRESENT was held up in mid-division, began to make headway inside the final half-mile, and while he betrayed a little greenness in the last furlong or so, he was always responding well to he urgings of his young rider and he sustained his effort to win going away. This seemed to exceed expectations and he can probably only improve.
With other recent Bumper winners Weseekhimhere and Thedevilscoachman, we are looking to the forthcoming National Hunt season with excitement for their sire Elusive Pimpernel.
