Verdict

LISTEN BOY, already a winner between the flags, has been taking on decent opposition in his two runs to date over fences. He wasn't disgraced in either and a clear round here should see him open his account under Rules. Night Force was placed at Cartmel and Wetherby last year but returns following a lay-off and would undoubtedly prefer a quicker surface. The four-year-old Uno D'estruval won at Nancy in May for Guillaume Macaire but the merit of that form is questionable and he has his first run here for Sarah Humphrey and tries a new trip.
