13:35 Wetherby

A competitive handicap here. Sawpit Sienna has finished second on two occasions since causing a 40/1 upset on his seasonal debut, he is consistent but creeping up the handicap without necessarily improving. Dan Skelton is in flying form at the moment and had a good treble at Warwick on Monday, he runs Embole here who is well handicapped on old form. Stepping up in trip should suit him and he would be the danger of the principles. However, at a decent price I am going to take a chance on Just A Deal. On first look he looks ordinary after three runs in novice events without showing much, that said I think there are two particularly good reasons to support him today. I think he will be much more at home in this race being a handicap and the other plus is the distance. All his runs have been over 2miles and I think he is crying out for further, todays trip of 2m3 1/2F should be ideal for him. He was noted making late headway last time at Leicester and can do better with the extra distance. He is a value price here and is worth an each way bet.
