Samtheman is interesting on his first start for Micky Hammond after showing some fair form for Fergal O'Brien. However, the combination of topweight and the return from an absence may prove too daunting, whilst Irish raider Mia's Anthem scored convincingly at Uttoxeter before being defeated by a 9lb rise next time up at Kelso. The Kelly charge runs off the same mark here. Have You Had Yours displayed dramatic improvement on previous efforts to score here last time and is only up 5lb but SNUKER impressed as a progressive sort when scoring over much further at Carlisle and should not be unduly inconvenienced by the drop in trip around here. He can follow-up and defy and 7lb penalty in the process.
