Is He The Dreal Deal?

When the original early declarations came out for this race I will feely admit I started getting excited! Appreciate It, Dreal Deal, and Ferny Hollow would have made a three-horse race worth watching, but the final line-up sees two of the three give the race a swerve and Dreal Deal with a bit of a “gimmee” (famous last words).

In September 2020, he won a handicap hurdle here off a mark of 84, and then rattled up five further successes in a row before going to the well once too often when seventh of twelve (and the last to finish) in the Mersey Hurdle (Grade One) at Aintree.

His prowess over fences is of course unknown, but he did some home third and second in his two point-to-points (beaten a length in the last one), and with the better ground ideal for him and not necessarily for others, he may well be up to winning over fences at the first attempt.
