Foxesbow returned from a short break to win over 3m at Uttoxeter in May but the extra on this stiff track could find him out. Crop Walker has another try over fences after scoring easily over hurdles at Hexham, while City Of Doral will seek to build on a recent victory over fences at the same track. Bob Will has been beaten off lower marks lately, however, while Downward Spiral has struggled since winning a novice event at Uttoxeter in May. QUATTROCENTO is at the top of his game, however, and has been taking on better opposition than this recently. He's gone up 4lb since finishing second to Cullahill at Ffos Las but stays well and has every chance of recording a fifth win over fences.
