RACE PREVIEW & TIPS (THURSDAY)

15:00 Newmarket

French raiders are having a good time on these shores so far this season and Le Brivido looks almost certain to go off favourite here for Andre Fabre. Impressive when winning the Jersey at Ascot last term he has to be high on anyones list though a few French raiders have failed to act here in the past. Brando tends to go well when fresh and he bids to retain this prize having won it comfortably last season, proven under most going conditions and having had the breathing operation during the off season it is very hard to envisage him not being bang there at the end. Magical Memory is another former winner of this and respect is afforded. Projection looks a very interesting type for the future, he needed his comeback run last term however so a watching brief is advised. Of the rest it is hard to know what to expect, on that premise the Kevin Ryan trained Brando is handed the vote

BRANDO (WIN) – NAP
