The top weighted and horse with the best credentials coming into the contest for his seasonal debut is the seven year old Brando.
This gelding has the most experience and more wins at the top level in six furlong events than any other runner in the field, with his stand out run coming in the Group 1 Prix Maurice at Deauville.
He is known for running well in defeat finishing in the places in many top Group 1 events in his career. However, with this race he has made it his own over the last few years winning the last two renewals of this contest and having a great chance to land the hat-trick.
