This looks really tight with the leading contenders closely matched. Fight U For It held off the attentions of Master Of Time over 7f here a fortnight ago and is upped 4lb. The latter had earlier beaten Political Policy over track and trip and Mick Halford's charge has subsequently won over 6f here. No excuses have been forthcoming for NOT YOUR CALL running poorly behind Fight U For It last time but he's forgiven that effort and gets another chance on his earlier defeat of subsequent winner Lone Star over course and distance.
