Tenancy won this last year but arrives badly out of sorts this time around and course and distance winner Bonnie Prince Blue is another struggling to find his best. Mango Music may improve on her recent four-length defeat here as she steps up a furlong but BENTLEY moves in the opposite direction and gets the vote. Brian Baugh's charge couldn't cope with the progressive Our Ivor over a mile at this track last time but finished well clear of the third and looks set to end his long losing run.
