I Can Fly and Le Brivido are set to be pitched into the Al Shaqab Lockinge at Newbury on May 18 by trainer Aidan O’Brien.
Amedeo Modigliani and Magical have also kept their entries for the race, but it is more than likely that they will be omitted closer to the time as O’Brien focuses on his main pair of contenders.
I Can Fly showed her attributes when following up a disappointing outing at Meydan by going to within a neck of getting the better of Roaring Lion in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes on Champions Day, while Le Brivido was last seen finishing third at Naas.

O’Brien, who revealed that he could also still leave in Magical, said: “Obviously I Can Fly is being strongly considered at the moment with Le Brivido, who is going there.
With Magical, we will wait a little bit closer to the time with her. “I Can Fly’s run in Dubai was just one of those things.
Maybe she just didn’t take the journey that well, but she seems to be in good form since. “We were delighted with Le Brivido’s latest run. We are just getting a feel of him and getting to know a little bit about him and we wanted to make sure that he relaxed nicely in Naas, and he did. “We’ve been very happy with him since his run.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
