Verdict

This looks pretty open. Listen And Learn failed to cope with an 8lb rise at Newton Abbot last time but today's longer trip will suit. Letemgo has a bit more to prove over 3m given his earlier win came over 2m4f at Wincanton though it's no problem for Market Rasen winner Airmen's Friend, who also has the ground to suit. Richard Johnson gets the leg-up on KING BORU for the first time as the former looks to improve on his recent placed efforts. His latest third to Flicka Williams at Uttoxeter is working out well so Emma Lavelle's charge gets the vote.
