In depth

Verdict

Snuker has obvious claims racing off a lower mark back over hurdles having landed a double over fences last month. Amethyst Rose scored at Hexham last time and is upped 11lb for that success, while Brae On finished ahead of Lady Of Verona when runner-up at the same track but has ran poorly since. MAGGIE BLUE ran well in a tougher race at Carlisle a week ago having beaten St Gregory at Newcastle before that, and racing off the same mark today, Harriet Graham's mare gets the vote.
