Verdict

The switch to fences looked to have really improved HILLS OF DUBAI who put in a fine first chasing performance from the front jumping really well, he gets a 7lb rise for that effort and that looks unlikely to stop him making a bold bid again over fences. Calvigny is one of the main dangers but his overall chasing record is a little off putting while Un Noble and Present Flight need to bounce back from a poor run and a long absence respectively. Of the remainder Valzan is the most interesting his two runs over fences so far have been better than his finishing position and he’s worth a second look here back over a shorter trip.
