LETS GET SERIOUS wasn't beaten far in third over these fences last time. Racing off the same mark today in what looks a less competitive contest, James Ewart's charge can come out best. Nodform Richard disappointed last time but has a shout on his third at Carlisle before that and Carrigdhoun should be in the mix once again having made the frame over course and distance on his latest start. Fiddlers Reel has something to prove now after failing to figure of today's mark at Perth and Papa Caruso is upped in class on the back of a third at Hexham in April.
