Listen And Learn has won two of his last three on much quicker ground that he'll face here and is 8lb higher. Hollow Penny didn't enjoy fast ground at Taunton on his final start last season and had done much better on softer going earlier. Capellanus is very versatile and acts on any ground though it was fast when he scored over 2m on the Flat at Musselburgh in June. PIPER HILL has really found his form in the past few weeks and though his two victories have been over much longer trips he has enough pace to complete his hat-trick. Benefit Cut easily landed a novices event at Kempton in April and would have needed last month's comeback at Market Rasen.
