Wolverhampton: Deal A Dollar
Poorly positioned when they went no gallop at Kempton. Did well to pass a few horses with fastest closing sectional but never reeling in the winner. 5lbs better off & different pace scenario could see tables turned.
Deal A Dollar has a 5lbs pull with Sky Defender but has to turn around a 2.75 length defeat. The weight doesn’t make up for the margin but a difference pace scenario could. The 7-runners crawled around Kempton for the first 9f before sprinting for home. It meant that Deal A Dollar, who was in rear turning for home, had little chance of winning.
To his credit he clocked the fastest closing sectional and managed to pass three horses but the winner had already flown. In another small field, there could be a lack of pace but hopefully Jamie Spencer will be more alert to the fact, although given his riding style that is not guaranteed.
Deal A Dollar still has relatively few miles on the clock, is a two-time winner at this trip and should be slightly shorter in the better for what is an open race.
