June 27 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index is seen opening 6 points higher at 7,423 on Thursday, according to financial bookmakers.

* VODAFONE: Vodafone VOD.L is set to secure EU antitrust approval for its $22 billion bid for Liberty Global's LBTYA.O cable networks in Germany and central Europe after offering concessions in May, people familiar with the matter said on Wednesday. BP: BP BP.L is returning to the animal feed business a quarter of a century after exiting the sector. The oil and gas company said it is investing $30 million in Calysta Inc., which produces protein for fish, livestock and pet food. BRITISH ELECTIONS: Boris Johnson, the favourite to become British prime minister, said the chances of Britain leaving the European Union without a deal are "a million-to-one" even as he repeated his promise to leave the bloc without a deal by the end of October. G20: Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May at this week's G20 summit in Japan with a view to seeking improved relations between the countries, the Kremlin said on Wednesday. OIL: Oil fell on Thursday, erasing some of the previous session's strong gains, as traders await the G20 summit in Japan and a meeting of OPEC and other oil producers to decide on an extension of output cuts. GOLD: Gold prices were little changed on Thursday following a steep fall in the previous session, as investors waited on any Sino-U.S. trade developments later this week, while bulls rolled back hopes of big U.S. interest rate cuts. EX-DIVS: British American Tobacco BATS.L , British Land Co BLND.L , Burberry Group BRBY.L , Experian EXPN.L and JD Sports JD.L will trade without entitlement to their latest dividend pay-out on Thursday, trimming 6.18 points off the FTSE 100 according to Reuters calculations London's main index edged down 0.1% on Wednesday as investor anxiety after the U.S. Federal Reserve tampered expectations of interest rate cuts was compounded by Washington's ambiguous signals on trade negotiations with China.
