15/8

Won first-time out in four of his five season racing including winning this race in both 2018 and 2017. Consistent Group class sprinter who makes a great deal of appeal here with every box seemingly ticked.

After winning his first three starts he went off the shortest priced Wokingham favourite in memory but finished a neck second of 28. Limitations then seemed to be exposed at Group level but not written off at this level just yet.

Three-year-old season slightly disappointing on the whole but after winning a minor event at Leicester he twice finished fourth in 5f Group Three's. Third on return at Doncaster in a Listed race but pulled hard up to 6f. Capable if he settles.

Real money spinner this 11-time winner and added last season's Stewards Cup to two Group Three's and two Listed wins. Didn't run after Stewards success in August so here after lengthy absence but has won first time out before.

Won five times for Jeremy Noseda and on stable debut in January at Kempton. Disappointed next however in Wolverhampton Listed race after a wide trip and would need a career-best to make the frame.

Won both career turf races (first two career starts) before attaining a decent level of form on AW. Recent fifth of nine at Wolverhampton in Listed company however is short of what's required so must improve for switch back to the turf.

Maisons-Laffitte Listed win last April the highlight of his four successes for previous connections when based in France. Seems improved on when based in UK with Sir Michael Stoute but still doubt he's quite up to this.

Become an absolute model of consistency finishing first or second in nine (of eleven) races. Career best when winning a 6f Group Three at Newbury last season and a repeat of that form would see him involved here too.

Betting

Forecast

Brando (15/8), Dreamfield (11/4), Equilateral (5/1), Gifted Master (6/1), Yafta (7/1), Sir Thomas Gresham (25/1), Time's Arrow (33/1), Keystroke (66/1)

Verdict

Having won this first time out the last two seasons and winning first time out four seasons on the trot BRANDO makes a huge amount of appeal especially considering he's rated 6lb plus superior to all of these rivals. Gifted Master is a reliable performer at this level who goes well fresh and Dreamfield still has relatively few miles on the clock yet plenty of decent form.
