Brazen Beau took another positive step towards Royal Ascot when scoring a 900-metre barrier trial win at Rosehill on Monday morning.

The Chris Waller-trained two-time Group I winner is targeting the King’s Stand Stakes (1000m) on June 16.

The three-year-old son of I Am Invincible looked sharp winning the trial, bouncing straight to the front for Hugh Bowman and cruising home to score by one length.

The 900-metre trial was covered in 53.7 seconds.

Brazen Beau’s next assignment in Australia will be a jump-out at Flemington with Shamal Wind on May 29 before flying out on June 3.

Along with the Robert Smerdon-trained Shamal Wind, Gai Waterhouse’s colt Wandjina is expected to join the pair en route to England, giving Australia a three-pronged assault at the world famous UK racing festival.
