Ruth Carr saddled Imperial Dijay to win this 12 months ago and relies on Al Muheer today while Kevin Ryan and Brian Ellison, responsible for Gramercy and Memory Cloth respectively, are others to have trained the winner in recent years. Dubai Hills took advantage of a tumbling mark to score over the distance on soft ground at Redcar last week but FULBRIGHT should have more scope. He was contesting Group races as a two-year-old and having only his second start of the campaign when scoring at Newmarket last week. Mark Johnston's colt can follow up off a 4lb higher mark as Brae Hill is probably a few pounds too high now and worse off than when behind Dubai Hills at York two runs ago. Fieldgunner Kirkup is a couple of pounds out of the handicap but may still prove the pick of the remainder.
