2020 Brigadier Gerard Stakes Free Tips and Trends

Run over 1m2f the Group Three Brigadier Gerard Stakes is normally staged at Sandown racecourse each year towards the end of May - however, the rescheduled fixture list now sees the Brigadier Gerard Stakes being run at Haydock racecourse on Sunday 7th June.

In recent years, the valuable prize has been dominated by the 4 year-olds, with 12 of the last 17 going to that age bracket, while we’ve seen five winning favourites in the last 17 renewals and jockey Ryan Moore has ridden home the last FOUR winners and six of the last nine!

We are on-hand to look back at past winners, plus have all the stats ahead of the 2020 race – this year is likely to be run on Sunday 7th June at Haydock racecourse.

Rescheduled from Sandown – being one of the races we lost during lockdown. Therefore, the trends and stats have to be taken with a pinch of salt. Telecaster was a Derby fancy last season, but flopped in the big race so has a bit to prove at the moment – the drop back to 1m2f might suit better and he could be better for the break, but I’d like to see a return to form on the track first. I feel the Gosden runner – Lord North – can go well, while Bangkok and the top-rated Elarqam are others that will surely attract attention. The last-named is the clear top-rated in the field and runs for the in-form Mark Johnston team. He didn’t quite live up to G1 level last season but is a Listed and G2 winner so this drop back to a G3 will be easier for him – he’s one for the shortlist. However, it’s hard to get away from the good record in this race for the Sir Michael Stoute team – they’ve won 6 of the last 17! They bid to add to that record here with the 4 year-old SANGARIUS. We last saw this horse winning the Hampton Court Stakes at Royal Ascot in fine fashion, with another runner – King Ottokar – around 2 ½ lengths back in third. With only 5 career runs he’s lightly-raced and the Stoute camp are clearly taking their time with him. He’s got a bit to find based on the ratings and it won’t be easy giving 3lbs away to the others too, but he’s a horse that looks to have more in the locker and looks ready to kick on again this season. Danny Tudhope gets the ride.
