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.
