Last year’s first day was a complete washout for the European runners, but this time around there is some strength in depth in the juvenile raiders.

21.50 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint

Twilight Jet has managed to bag the plum draw in stall 1 and could well get a good tow into this race, maybe needs softer going to be seen to best advantage but that draw has been kind. Armour is another with strong claims and probably brings the best form into this, he seems versatile with ground conditions too.

23.10 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf

Hello You must have a fair chance in this. She has a nice turn of foot and should be doing some good late work. Mise En Scene is another with a good chance and will stay this trip well, but the draw is a killer, and she will need luck from there. Cachet has a great draw, and the booking of Luis Saez looks interesting.

00.30 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf

This looks a race primed for the European challenge to get on the board. Modern Games has all the attributes you need to win around this track, smart from the gates and should have no problem staying the mile and has the plum draw. Albahr comes into this undefeated since his debut 3rd, he has a great draw in 2 and will stay so plenty to like too. Dubawi Legend has the form to go well, but the widest gate position has done for his chances. Glounthaune from the O’Brien yard looks an interesting runner. Stall 8 is not too bad, and the all-conquering trainer knows what it takes to win around this track.

Day 2 sees a host of challenges from the Europeans and usually a few good performances.

19.40 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint

Emaraaty Ana probably brings the best form into this race and will love the fast ground and has drawn stall 2 to work with (plenty to like). A Case Of You needs soft ground to be seen to best advantage and it is not going to be that. Glass Slippers has won in the US previously (this race last season) has bagged the plum draw and should put in a bold display.

20.59 Maker's Mark Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf

Love & Audarya has similar claims, the latter coming back to defend her crown from last season and the former a solid yardstick who should run her race. Acanella could be an outsider to go well given her connections from a good draw in 3.

22.20 FanDuel Breeders' Cup Mile Presented By PDJF

Space Blues heads the market for this race and brings in the best form by some way. Seems versatile ground wise & has a good draw so it’s easy to see him running well. Mother Earth has been a bit disappointing this season but caught the eye last time out when given plenty to do and went close in a juvenile race last year at the Breeders Cup. Master Of The Seas has the plum draw, but often starts slowly and will need luck in the run. Pearls Galore has been killed off by the draw.

23.40 Longines Breeders' Cup Turf

This looks another strong race for the Europeans, and it will be disappointing if it does not go back over the pond.
