Fabricate heads five runners in the Matchbook Brigadier Gerard Stakes at Sandown on Thursday evening.

Owned by the Queen and trained by Michael Bell, Fabricate was narrowly touched off in the Gordon Richards Stakes last time, with the winner, Crystal Ocean, going on to score again at Newbury last week.

Ralph Beckett’s Air Pilot, Desert Encounter from David Simcock’s yard, the Owen Burrows-trained Laraaib and Sir Michael Stoute’s Poet’s Word also line up.

The other Group Three on the card is the Matchbook VIP Henry II Stakes which sees impressive Chester Cup winner Magic Circle step up in class for Ian Williams.

Simcock’s Sheikhzayedroad sets the standard with the John Gosden pair of Weekender and Glencadam Glory also declared.

Montaly, Red Verdon, Mount Moriah and Time To Study complete the eight runners.

There are nine in the Matchbook-sponsored Heron Stakes, with Gosden’s Without Parole an interesting runner.

He was forced to miss the 2000 Guineas with a late setback.
