Master trainer Andre Fabre does not waste visits to this country and LE BRIVIDO can deliver another success for the French maestro. The colt has only enjoyed three starts to date and should have considerable scope for further progression and ran a tremendous race when succumbing by a short head in the French 2000 Guineas at Deauville to subsequent French Derby winner, Brametot. This specialist trip could prove ideal for the French raider. Dream Castle is a dream ride for Josephine Gordon and the Frankel colt has definite claims on the back of an excellent second in the Greenham to Barney Roy and a more than respectable fifth in the 2000 Guineas behind Churchill. He should go well, likewise Daban. The Nell Gywn winner came home third behind Winter and Rhododendron in the 1000 Guineas and will be well suited by the return to 7f. Whitecliffsofdover is a respected Coolmore representative and sports first-time headgear, whilst Chessman, Taamol and Solomon's Bay all hail from high-class yards, are all progressive and rate lively outsiders in a splendid opener.
