Letemgo won at Kelso last time but today’s conditional is unable to claim his allowance and Andrew Hamilton’s charge is worse off with RIVABODIVA for an earlier defeat here. The latter scored over track and trip in October and has every chance back in this grade having struggled in better company last time. Sory has slipped down the handicap and posted a better effort when runner-up at Sedgefield on his latest start but Green Tikkana was still well beaten when third over 2m here and the rest are even harder to recommend.
