Nicky Henderson is rarely far away in these type of events and LADY RHINESTONE can provide him with another success; the list of dangers is headed by El Passos and Klampenborg. The selection has shaped with promise on two starts to date and this mare showed improved form to finish fifth behind Canyouseeme at Towcester. Tony McCoy is booked and with conditions to suit she looks the percentage call. El Passos is an interesting newcomer and if the market were to speak in his favour then it could pay to take note. Klampenborg caught the eye on his debut at Uttoxeter and if he can build on that promising run then he will not be far away at the finish. Tim Vaughan's Himitas catches the eye on breeding but she failed to sparkle on her debut and she will need to leave that form behind if she is to land a serious blow here. The market may well provide the clues here but Lady Rhinestone gets our vote to open her account.
