Suit handling question

Holding

T432

AJ87

and needing 3 tricks from this suit - as expected, to me - SuitPlay says you should start with low from dummy and finesses the 8 (playing RHO for H9x).

My question: If you also know that in a side suit, LHO holds 3 cards, and RHO 5 cards, is it still optimal to take the deep finesse when RHO follows low, or does it skew the odds so the Jack is now better (playing RHO for Hx)? Plus: how can I figure it out at the table? Smile

(as a curiousity, I noticed, if you instead hold slightly different T432 vs AJ85, SuitPlay says you should start with the Ten from dummy... suit-handling is a very delicious subject Smile )
