One of our notebook horse from the Cheltenham Festival. Still unexposed, has form on good ground and soft, with plenty of rain forecast, runs well fresh and is very much worth an interest.
Deans Road, came into this race a relatively inexperienced horse, having raced only twice before switching to fences, and then contesting mainly small fields in Ireland. Made a serious blunder at the 9th fence and did remarkably well to get back into the race, let alone still be travelling strongly turning for home. Not surprisingly he faded in the closing stages, but if not making that blunder would have gone very close.
