The Thursday Briefing: essential betting information

The Cambridgeshire meeting is one of several highlights
1 of 1

Newmarket's Craven meeting reaches its climax this afternoon, with the Group 3 bet365 Craven Stakes taking centre stage.

Racing Post Trophy winner Rivet is the only Group 1 victor in the field, but he has been usurped at the head of the market by Aidan O'Brien's War Decree.

O'Brien struck with his first British runner of the season on Wednesday when Whitecliffsofdover scored in the Free Handicap, and he bids to claim the Craven for the first time.

Last year's Ayr Gold Cup winner Brando makes his seasonal reappearance in the Group 3 Connaught Access Flooring Abernant Stakes, with a pair of handicaps plus a Listed chase at Cheltenham making up the coverage on ITV4.

The jumps season may be winding down, but there are still good prizes on offer at Cheltenham, including a trio of Listed races.
