Lake Louise is the only course and distance winner in the line-up but, though she'll love the ground, she's now 19lb higher. C'Est Ma Souer produced a shock to beat a huge field at the Curragh last week but an 8lb rise looks harsh so the vote goes to SNAKES AND LADDERS. Tommy Stack's charge hasn't had much racing but won a handicap on soft ground at Naas and has run well in two subsequent starts in heavy going. Caged Lightning gained his only success to date on Polytrack but doesn't look badly treated while Capitol Hill found heavy going and stronger company too much for him at Listowel last month.
