Rob Conti looks as though he's having a confidence-booster having lost his way over fences. He could figure if responding to hurdles but LETSBY AVENUE was very impressive when winning easily at Uttoxeter at the end of June and should be good enough to give him 7lb. Emily's Flyer and Piper Hill are the pick of the remainder but likely to be playing for place money.
