Verdict

Having already won twice over fences, Getaway Trump is certainly no slouch. However, he has finished last in small fields in two other occasions and probably doesn’t have the scope of his two rivals. FIDDLERONTHEROOF had a similar rating over hurdles and was all out to get off the mark over fences at Exeter but is still preferred to the Nicholls’ runner and Caribean Boy, who won a competitive handicap at Haydock at the start of the year but has no form on this much quicker surface.
