PINCH OF POSH gets the vote in a tricky opener by virtue of the fact that she showed massive improvement on her first two starts when scoring at Warwick last month. Judging by the money she attracted, that run clearly wasn't unexpected and Paul Cole's filly probably has more to offer. Shes Rosie is a consistent sort but Paradise Place may be in the handicapper's grip now and Alkhawarah was well beaten on her handicap debut but Millyluvstobouggie was only beaten half-a-length at Kempton 10 days ago and should make her presence felt again.
