    July 9 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening 17
points lower at 7,532 on Tuesday, according to financial bookmakers.

denied a report that Chief Executive Officer Kenneth Alexander last year sold
the company's Turkish unit to a business partner to push through the acquisition
of rival Ladbrokes.
    * KCOM: British pension fund Universities Superannuation Scheme Ltd said on

KCOM Plc, valuing the telecom network and cloud-based service provider
at about 566 million pounds ($708.52 million).
    * OIL: Oil fell on Tuesday amid worries over the outlook for demand after
