Verdict

DELIGHTFUL SLEEP finished third over track and trip on Saturday behind Idol Deputy, who runs in the previous race. This is much less competitive and David Evans' charge gets the vote. He'd earlier beaten Penbryn at this track while Final Delivery beat Just Five with Justcallmehandsome a long way behind when scoring here last month. The latter makes more appeal than Matraash, runner-up in a claimer recently, but the lightly-raced Deal Me In maybe capable of better.
