The feature event on the card is the Group Two Al Maktoum Challenge and Hot Rod Charlie makes big appeal for Doug O'Neill.
The American exploit is a dual Grade One winner on fast ground last year over in the US over nine furlongs and if replicating that form in this could be very tough to pass.
Two starts ago in November he finished a narrow fourth of eight in the Breeders' Cup Classic at Del Mar, which looks very strong form.
Last seen on Boxing Day in the Grade Two Antonio Stakes at Santa Anita he was a nose second and that would have set him up perfectly for his first run in Dubai.
Likeable profile on dirt and with William Buick in the saddle he looks solid.
