Verdict

DUBAI HILLS could only manage third on his Fibresand debut back in 2011 but has proved invincible on this surface since, winning his last seven starts at the track. He only just got the better of Frontier Fighter here in December but is better off at the weights today and can confirm superiority. Noble Citizen rattled up a hat-trick of wins over a mile on this surface earlier in the year but is 8lb higher than his latest success. However, he beat a below-par Greyfriarschorista easily enough last month and should also have too much for Dr Red Eye. The once-classy Regal Parade has been a rare visitor to this venue in recent years but scored over course and distance as a three-year-old and is not easily dismissed.
