Cityscape Dominates Duty Free

JAMES DOYLE punched the air in celebration as he crossed the line well clear of his rivals on Cityscape to post a first Group 1 of his career.

The Roger Charlton-trained six-year-old came home in splendid isolation to gain a well-deserved first win at the highest level after a series of solid efforts in defeat last year.

Doyle, who has enjoyed a successful spell in Dubai over the winter, only came in for the ride after regular rider Steve Drowne was prevented from riding for at least a month after suffering from dizzy spells earlier in the week.

All I can say about Cityscape in this race is WOW!! He completely dominated a Dubai Duty Free field that I felt like was the deepest field on the entire world cup night card from top to bottom. Cityscape gave a very strong hint last season that he had developed into a legitimate G1 level horse when first finished right up Canford Cliffs and Goldikova's back side in the G1 Queen Anne Stakes at Ascot. He then went on and won a couple of G3's, one in Ireland and one in France. He was then real unlucky to have gotten clipped right on the wire by Dick Turpin in the G1 Premio Vittorio Di Cappua in Italy, and after that, he ran a really strong 2nd behind Able One in the G1 Hong Kong Mile. But today, Cityscape announced he's for sure a G1 level horse by just mauling a field that not included many of Europe's best at this distance, but Hong Kong's best as well.
