If you have not seen this I recommend watching a replay.
Dreal Deal, as big as 20/1 this morning, was backed all day and went off 6/4 favourite. He almost unseated his rider at the first but still came there swinging on the bridle and bolted up. How much did he have in hand?
This horse had never placed in all his other starts over hurdles. His last run was on the Flat in a 7f handicap, where he was unplaced at 100/1.
The stewards have to ask where did this improvement come from?
