EXPRESO BRASILEIRO (best price 5-1)
has proved the epitome of consistency in recent times and Willie McCreery’s charge looks booked to go well again with plenty seemingly in his favour. Just one win in 11 starts would normally set the alarm bells ringing, but to be fair to the son of Lope De Vega, he’s endured quite a few hard luck stories along the way. Indeed, last time out was another example of a race that might have fallen his way with a better rub of the green and if he’d got the breaks just at the right time, he may have beaten the all-the-way winner, Great Wide Open. Set to re-oppose his old rival 25 days on, the four-year-old gelding should once again get the race run to suit his stalk and pounce run-style courtesy of several strong front runners in the line-up and with a good draw and easy underfoot conditions added to the list of positives, he makes plenty of each-way appeal at 5-1.
