Former Ballydoyle inmate Harrison's Cave can't get much lower in the weights but continues on a downward curve. Point The Toes has a penalty for Monday's Carlisle win but stays well and should be thereabouts again and is preferred to the luckless Geanie Mac. It's a brave punter who ignores Serena Brotherton's mounts in races like this and LA BACOUETTEUSE is no exception. He won over course and distance last month before finishing third under a penalty at Yarmouth and still looks fairly treated.
