Verdict

CARTERS REST, both of whose career successes have been delivered here, is an unoriginal selection but does set a decent standard. He scored with a degree of comfort here last time from Bunratty for which he's been raised 6lb which seems a reasonable hike. He ran well on his only attempt on heavy ground as a novice back in 2009 and can follow up that recent course success. Acordingtoscript is the potential improver after a just a handful of runs and didn't do too badly here last time behind Total Rebellion. He looks next best. Rawaaj will handle the ground and has a chance on the best of his form but hasn't been seen since running on the Flat back in August. He may just need this outing off topweight in these conditions.
