Cheltenham - 13:30 - Back Letsbeclearaboutit

Letsbeclearaboutit hasn't quite built on the useful level of ability he showed early in the season but I think the market is underestimating his chance now that he's back over a suitable trip.

He started the season with two comfortable victories and for a long way it looked like he was going to make it three in a row in the Drinmore but he found far less than looked likely in the closing stages and finished third.

Letsbeclearaboutit was dropped back in trip for his handicap chase debut next time and I thought he ran well to finish third considering his jumping wasn't anywhere near as slick as it had been in previous starts.

He was stepped up in trip by nearly a mile last time at Naas and looked a blatant non stayer over 3m1f when finishing a well beaten third.

He's now back down to a trip that looks ideal for him and I think being able to track a likely strong pace should suit too given that he's been a little keener than ideal at times in the past.

It might be that he's just a bit weak off the bridle but I think his current price underplays his talent and any 16/117.00 or bigger appeals.

Back Letsbeclearaboutit in the 13:30 at Cheltenham 0.5pt e/w at 25/126.00
