A hefty purchase, Deploy The Getaway is yet to really justify his price. He promised the world after his 20L P2P win, but has only managed to win one race under rules from seven.

He was behind Flame Bearer last time out, and very well beaten. Work to do with Flame Bearer so he naturally has loads on to trouble the ones at the top of the market. Has ample to find.

A good G2 win on his latest start reads well, just touching off Ha D’or with Deploy The Getaway well beaten in fifth.

Prior to that, he’d won another G2, so he’s clearly still improving – and he looks to be versatile with regards the going. He’s a big player, but does have some classy rivals to dispatch.

Much improved recently, after a few underwhelming early season efforts. His third in the Supreme at Cheltenham makes for exceptional reading.

He also will appreciate this track, of which he’s two from two at. He will again have to build on his previous two efforts, though he’s far from a long way off the standard here. Massive chance.

French recruit. He fell on his debut in Ireland but won with ease next time out at Limerick. He was sent to Cheltenham in the County Hurdle and at odds of 11/4, he won with such authority, clearly capitalising on a ridiculously low handicap mark.

He seems exceptionally classy, uncomplicated and Paul Townend rides – which is a plus. Standout.

Won his last two including a G3 latest from Vina Ardanza in second. He’s steadily progressive, though this might be a big ask at this stage in his career.

The current stable form has to be a worry as well, with the Meade yard operating at around a 3% strike rate, he’s risky, but he could still be improving.

Three Stripe Life finally got his much deserved G1 last time out at Aintree, bolting up from Might I and North Lodge in 2nd and 3rd respectively.

Prior to that, he’d been admirably consistent and ran to a solid level of form (second to Sir Gerhard twice and Mighty Potter once).

One of the class acts in this field and he’s a solid, tough horse with a touch of class.
