Jockey James Doyle believes Glorious Journey is the one to beat ahead of Friday's Dubai Duty Free Cup at Newbury.
The five-year-old has not won since January this year, with Doyle partnering him to success at Meydan.
Since then, William Buick finished third at Riyadh, while Doyle was unable to see him to victory at Goodwood and Newbury.
After a short break, the gelded son of Dubawi will return for trainer Charlie Appleby, alongside stablemate D'bai.
A drop down in trip should now suit Doyle's ride, and he believes it will make the difference on Friday afternoon.
He told reporters: "He definitely needs to put a couple of below-par runs behind him. The team at home are happy with him, so hopefully, he can go well, but he does need to bounce back.
"Conditions should be perfect for him as we know he likes the track having won the Group Two there last year.
"Hopefully the ground won't dry out too much as he does like to get his toe in, but good ground should be fine."
