Automation Triggers- What happens if changing list name?

I have some automation rules set up to trigger when a card is moved into a particular list, the list in question is a to do list but it gets regularly renamed when we enter new sprints.
It seems that when I rename the list, it no longer triggers the rule, as the rule is looking for the specific list name, as opposed to monitoring that particular list.

Is there any way of creating the rule in such a way that it will continue to run even when I rename the list?

@Douglas Cook you can trigger a rule when a card is moved to a list "starting with" a particular word/string, so you just have to name your list like "ToDo - THISCHANGES".

Thanks Iain, though this doesn't seem to work.
In this case I have a list names.

"To Do- Sprint 1-13 June"
So in the trigger I'm renaming for it to trigger on adding a card to the list named.



However nothing happens....

@Douglas Cook the text THISCHANGES in my example was supposed to represent the part of the list name that changes.

What I'm saying is that you should trigger a rule when a card is moved into a list starting with "To Do-" and then you can change the sprint name and the rule will still work.

Sorry, I misread. But it's not actually clear how to create the rule to do this. In the preset conditions for creating such a rule, there's no option to create a rule for list name "including", you can manually edit the list name field and I've tried using the [*] trigger as suggested here but it doesn't work.....

@Douglas Cook wildcards are {*} rather than [*] the trigger would look like this:
