Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

GETAWAY TRUMP has been called a few names in his time but it's hard to knock his record over 2m on good ground and he's taken to build on his comfortable Doncaster win last time. Last month's Sandown 1-2 Grey Diamond and Dostal Phil are possible threats, while Destrier, who was third in a Grade 1 novice chase at this meeting in 2019, is dangerously well treated if staging a revival.
