P2P.ie comment: The Great Getaway has been nothing but consistent since making his debut at Largy in April of last year. He finished third that day, the Willie Mullins-trained two-time bumper winner Getabird winning on that occasion. Fifth first time out this season behind another expensive purchase in Poli Roi, who was subsequently sold for £300,000, the Getaway gelding deservedly got his head in front when winning at Curraghmore in mid-April. Readily asserting from two-out, he took control under Rob James and won with the minimum of fuss. From the family of Gallant Oscar who reached a rating of 149 over fences for Tony Martin, The Great Getaway has been mixing it with some high class recruits and is sure to prove popular.
