Penmore Hill was always going well when recording an easy success at Towcester last week, his fourth victory in seven starts under Rules. Fred Hutsby's nine-year-old should go close again but we'll take a chance on the fitness of ROCKITEER. Jane Williams is good value for her 5lb claim and her mount isn't highly tried on his hunter chase debut. He was a useful handicapper on good ground last summer for Henry Daly. Tiermore is also returning from a break but looks the pick of the remainder.
