This Ones For Eddy is a course winner but hasn't been at his best lately and was still beaten seven lengths when runner-up at Wolverhampton last month. Bentley is a course and distance winner with stronger claims given an apprentice takes 7lb off his back but the nod goes to OUR IVOR. He scored over track and trip on Wednesday with Mystical Witch finishing nearer last and is taken to shrug off a penalty and follow-up. Balmoral Castle is lightly-raced and a danger if handling the Fibresand but Rockgoat failed to beat a rival on his only previous start at the track.
