Brinkleys Poet, winner of the 2018 Gymcrack and Select Stakes, contests his first race in eight months on Thursday at Hove.

Now handled by Mark Wallis, the black has shown no signs of a recurrence of the wrist injury that he sustained the Ladbrokes Gold Cup Final at Monmore.

He clocked 28.65 in his most recent trial on the same course and distance where he will return on Thursday. The track record, held by Trade Fudge, is 28.24.
