It's impossible to have much faith in Listen And Learn nowadays but Marie Deja La came right back to form at Fontwell, though her best form has come with some give in the ground. DETROIT RED has gone up 12lb since winning an amateurs' handicap over a shorter trip here last month but was most impressive that day and Martin Hill seems to have coaxed her back to the fair form she showed as a novice. If that's the case, she's still well treated. No Woman No Cry has won three times here in the past and will be all the better for a run at Uttoxeter so can't be ignored and last month's course winner Little Eaglet is also running well and goes on the short-list.
