In depth

Verdict

Unlike most of his rivals, BRAZEN has form on the track and wasn't beaten far on Tapeta last time. His earlier effort behind Roicead on Turf puts him in the driver's seat for this. He was just behind Kilt Rock in that latter event but appears to have made the greater progress and can take revenge. Mooqtar made a winning debut for Kevin Prendergast back in 2012 and only ran twice last year. He's one of the few here with scope and a big weight shouldn't be too much of a problem. Murbeh hasn't been running badly at a similar level and his only two victories have been on Turf.
