Verdict

This might just be the time to catch NO HUBRIS who remains quite lightly-raced for a four-year-old. Something was amiss when he was tailed off at Doncaster in July but he displayed strong form at Newmarket and Warwick in the spring and has been given a decent break since that Doncaster disappointment. Global City also makes strong appeal on the best of his form now down to a mark of 94. He showed up quite well at Meydan earlier in the year and hasn't been beaten far on either outing in two turf runs this season. He was less than seven lengths behind Hoof It in the Stewards' Cup and this extra furlong could just be what he needs nowadays. Glenridding seeks a hat-trick whilst Last Sovereign looks on a fair mark with Tom Queally a good booking.
