Forecast

Le Brivido (5/2), Imaging (7/2), Smash Williams (9/2), Romanised (5/1), No Needs Never (8/1), Psychedelic Funk (8/1), Nebo (33/1), Ellthea (33/1), Texas Rock (50/1)

Verdict
LE BRIVIDO is a fascinating contender on his first start for Aidan O'Brien and if he's fully fit for his return, he looks sure to take some beating. It's a tough ask for a three-year-old to win this race but there was plenty to like about No Needs Never campaign as a juvenile and he could run well in first-time headgear. There's little to separate several of these but Smash Williams has the benefit of a prep run and is as consistent as they come.
  1. Le Brivido
  2. No Needs Never
  3. Smash Williams
