Fabre expects more from Wukair
Andre Fabre is likely to run three in Sunday's Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville but they will not include his Royal Ascot winner Le Brivido.
Narrowly touched off in the French Guineas by Brametot, who has strong claims to be the best three-year-old colt in training, Le Brivido dropped to seven furlongs at Ascot and just got home from Spirit Of Valor.
Unfortunately he as encountered a minor problem which will keep him off the track until next month.
"Le Brivido has suffered a setback, so he won't be able to run in August," said Fabre.
"He should be back in time for the Moulin (September 10)."
From his seven entries Fabre will run Al Wukair, Inns Of Court and Trais Flours.
Al Wukair, considered by some as unlucky in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket when third to Churchill, has recovered from his own minor issue to finish second in a Group Three last time out.
"Al Wukair ran OK last time, but he'll be a lot fitter this week, he was slowly away and always up against it as he was short of work," said Fabre.
"Trais Flours was supposed to run at Goodwood, but the ground was too soft.
"He was second in the Jean Prat, but that was a funny race. He might not have won, but should definitely have been closer. This race shouldn't be like that."
