Verdict

Galician and Clockmaker are both winners on Polytrack but have yet to encounter this surface. By contrast, DUBAI HILLS is a course specialist and the winner of his last six starts on the Fibresand. Only 1lb higher than the latest of those victories back in March, Bryan Smart's charge gets the vote. Frontier Fighter is a course winner and went close at Kempton last time. He's taken to reverse earlier running at Doncaster with Laffan while Iptisam can also get involved if handling the Fibresand after a good effort at Wolverhampton last time.
