That does look symmetrical, but I'd try turning it around anyway and seeing if it helps, in case there is a difference that is not so easily seen.
Otherwise, you can't really do it wrong. If the rear bolt is fully engaged, it's fine, or you can get a slightly longer one. The front one can either be cut or you can find a shorter replacement one (I'd do this and keep the original) if it gets in the way.
As I said before, the angle of the rails relative to the rest of the saddle vary from saddle to saddle, and this saddle may just be pushing the limits of your seatpost (with original parts).
