Horses That Will Come On For The Run

Getaway Trump

Getaway Trump is held in very high regard by his trainer Paul Nicholls and connections but many punters and followers of this horse may have been deflated after watching his seasonal debut at Cheltenham at the end of last month.

He finished third of four runners in the two mile novices chase which was won by last seasons hurdling star Al Dancer but at one stage Nicholls' gelding was travelling the best coming up to the final fences but found nothing when coming up the hill.

The 11 time champion trainer has said that this horse will come on massively for the run and after jumping to good standard for most of the race he showed promising signs.

At the back end of last season he showed his clear ability over hurdles and now being fitter and stronger he should go close in Grade One contests this season.

He is 33/1 for the Arkle Chase at the Cheltenham festival which looks a very attractive each way price.


You will find a common theme with these runners as our second horse to follow next time out after having his first run on Wednesday at Chepstow is McFabulous.

This five year old trained by Paul Nicholls ran in four bumper contests last season winning three of his four contests and looking like a serious horse for the future.

He made his first start over hurdles in a 13 runner maiden where he was odds on to get back to winning ways but unfortunately looked keen and hard work for the jockey and could only manage second.

With the potential he holds from his bumper days he should come on a bunch for that experience, improving his jumping and how he travels throughout the race.

Next time out he should be a much better horse over hurdles.

Clan Des Obeaux

It might be a common occurrence with Paul Nicholls trained horses but the final one to follow is again from his yard with last seasons King George VI winner Clan Des Obeaux.

The chasing star was superb for the most part of last season winning the big Grade One at Kempton whilst also putting in some other stellar performances throughout his campaign.

He returned this season at Down Royal in the Grade One Champion Chase and ran to a very good standard finishing second behind Road To Respect who won the contest last year and goes well fresh.

Nicholls was very pleased and has said strongly how much he will come on for that run with the team having big aspirations for consecutive King George's.
