Verdict

Snuker has won over 3m2f and been placed twice over this slightly longer but was all out to beat Russe Blanc over 2m5f at Carlisle last time and may struggle to defy a 4lb higher mark. Tears From Heaven was well beaten at Ayr after winning an amateur riders' handicap at Musselburgh so we'll stick with course specialist CARA COURT. Joanne Foster's charge has been racing over shorter trips of late but stamina is no problem for the eight-year-old as he won over a course and distance a little over a year ago. Heez A Steel was only fifth in this last year and isn't getting any younger while it's hard to recommend either Debt To Society or Thats Ben on recent form.
