Throwback Thursday Race Of The Day - 13/01/22

Moscow Flyer

Today we are taking a look back at the Grade Two Moscow Flyer Novice Hurdle that takes place at Punchestown on Sunday with the outsider of the field for Ronan McNally taking the spoils.

The 2021 renewal of the race was won by Dreal Deal an extremely smart horse for the quirky trainer/owner Ronan Mcnally, with the seven year old drifting from 5/1 out to 22/1.

The gelding took on the likes on Ganapathi, Echoes In Rain and Magic Tricks, but came from last to first to see off the field by an easy three lengths.

It was the biggest win of his career and although not doing anything since in his two starts, picking up a slight injury at the back end of last season, he still holds bundles of ability.
