PLEASURE BENT was making his all-weather debut when a close third here last month where he only succumbed in the closing stages. That was only his fifth start and with more to offer he can take this under Richard Hughes. Secret Beau will be tackling this trip for the first time and his only success to date has been over 6f but Light Rose has no problems with the track or trip and Mark Johnston's consistent filly, who has been a bit unlucky on a couple of occasions, looks a big threat. Thistleandtworoses made a winning deut over the course and distance in March but things haven't gone his way in a light subsequent campaign while Rezwaan returns to the track for the first time since completing a double in April and five of his six Polytrack victories have been here.
