bet365 horse racing expert Pat Cooney previews the upcoming bet365 Mile at Newmarket, discussing the prospects of each of the five runners.
In-form Native Trail, trained by Chris Appleby and ridden by William Buick, goes into the race as favourite after finishing as runner-up in the 2000 Guineas at this corresponding meeting a year ago.
It is second-favourite Light Infantry who takes the fancy of Pat Cooney, however, backing jockey Jamie Spencer to prove his class over the distance.
He said: "You can see Jamie Spencer sitting at the back, monitoring developments, and coming through at the end to nab them.
"So I'll go for Light Infantry with a typical Jamie Spencer ride."
