Trainer Gordon Elliot enters just the one runner for this year’s race in Fury Road who is a Grade 1 novice winner.
He beat stablemate Run Wild Fred over 3m at Leopardstown last Christmas before chasing home Ahoy Senor at Aintree in a race that included horses such as L'Homme Presse and Bravemansgame who were both disappointing that day.
Put in a decent performance at roughly this trip on seasonal debut in a Grade 2 event at Down Royal beating Delvino by a short head.
He is probably best suited by running over a longer trip so may find it tough here.Has got a lot more on his plate this time round and will have to improve further to have a chance of being in the mix here especially over 2m3f.
Cannot be totally ruled out, but comes with risks attached.
