Verdict

A tight little handicap with John Wade and Sue Smith both doubly represented. Chicago Outfit should do better of the former's pair as stablemate Harris Hawk is making his chasing debut while Jonathan England's big claim may help Rebel Swing come out top of the Bingley-trained duo. JUST THE JOB made all and jumped well to score at Ludlow but lacked fluency at Wincanton last time. These fences shouldn't be too much of a problem and he can regain the winning thread at the main expense of Dollar Mick, who has been a beaten favourite on his last three starts. It's also interesting that Tom George sends Nodebateaboutit chasing after three moderate efforts over timber.
