Best fixing to attach metal rack to exposed brick?

Hi,
I have the below wine rack to attach to an exposed brick wall. It is 1m in length with the tubing being approx 10mm thick. It has 4 x 5mm fixing holes pre drilled into it.
https://www.manomano.co.uk/p/wall-mounted-wine-rack-for-7-bottles-black-metal-21370317?model_id=21360572

It came with plugs and screws for fixing, but they just seem too small for the weight that this is likely to hold [7 bottles per rack plus the weight of the rack itself [approx 5kg].

What would you recommend is the best fixing for the job?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi niceswan
Suggest you use 5x60mm screws using full length plastic plugs.
