ROSIE PROSPECTS looks to have a good opportunity to open her account. She never looked like catching the winner when runner-up over track and trip three weeks ago, but beat both Perfect Pursuit and Costa Filey and should confirm running. A couple of newcomers make up the rest of the field and Kissed By Fire could prove a bigger threat than Jenny Sparks as the former is a half-sister to a couple of winners including Cristal Gem, a winner on the all-weather.
