It's not easy winning one of these under a penalty and it's difficult to appraise what Fire Tower achieved at Uttoxeter. Rose Of The World disappointed on her second start after finishing third here on debut but Altesse De Guye shaped with promise over track and trip last month and should improve. David Pipe and Nicky Henderson have both saddled bumper winners recently so Lady Of Longstone and What A Jewel should be popular while McCoy rides Nicole K for Oliver Sherwood. I'Mwaitingforyou is another newcomer to catch the eye on breeding but we'll take a punt on the Old Vic mare LOWSONFORD ROSE as Dan Skelton is more than capable of getting one ready at home.
