BRUTUS has every chance on last month's narrow-margin defeat at Lingfield and looks to have the beating of the others with experience. Sonnolento was expected to finish closer over track and trip last time but slipped and unseated early on while Stamp Of Authority and Rock Heroine are likely improvers. Cilento is preferred to stablemate and fellow newcomer Special Code, and Dontesk, Packed House and Acclamate are others to note for any significant support on their racecourse debuts.
