A talented novice hurdler for Gordon Elliott, Fury Road spent a season in open company over hurdles but his form took a sharp downturn.
A switch to fences didn’t bring about an immediate change in form either. Beaten on his first two attempts over the bigger obstacles by smart rivals, he then showed his class when stepping up to 3 miles and winning a grade 1 handily. Beating Run Wild Fred in the process.
Last seen running a valiant 2nd behind Ahoy Senor at Aintree, he’s a strong staying chaser and could just be the biggest threat to Bob Olinger.
