I'd go in and have a look what has transpired before deciding on a fresh lump, might not be too bad if you are lucky.
Feel the top of the bore's for any apprechiable lip, if there is enough to grab your finger nail I'd scrap it.
Last head I had off had 90000 on it, there was no real detectable lip just a soot line.
