Some horses to follow on day two of Breeders Cup part two

| 05.11.2011

Part one of our preview of the second day of the Breeders Cup can be found here, but now we analyse the final five races on the card at Churchill Downs.

20:01 – Breeders Cup Dirt Mile

The Factor would arguably be much shorter than 5/1 in the Breeders Cup odds if not flopping on his latest start.

He should be forgiven this one-off poor run and can go well from the optimum stall close to the inside rail.

20:45 – Breeders Cup Turf

Sarafina is the class horse in the race and runners that flop in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe have a fine record of making amends in the Turf.

She is a worthy 9/4 favourite, while St Nicholas Abbey looks overpriced for each-way punters at 7/1 of Joseph O’Brien times his finishing burst correctly.

21:25 – Breeders Cup Juvenile

Union Rags has done little wrong in winning all three of his starts comprehensively, but Creative Cause looks another class act and 6/1 is great value that he upsets the favourite.

Aidan O’Brien has two runners entered and Daddy Long Legs looks to have a solid dirt pedigree. He could worthy of consideration each-way at 12/1.

22:07 – Breeders Cup Mile

Goldikova goes in search of a fourth straight victory in the race and although her form has arguably slightly dipped this season, stall one is a massive bonus and should make her tough to beat at 5/2.

In terms of each-way options, Mr. Commons arguably looks the bet of the meeting at 33/1 as he has never been outside of the first two on turf and could pick them off late, particularly as he also has a good draw.

23:00 – Breeders Cup Classic

Uncle Mo and So You Think are both on the drift at 6/1 and certainly both have the attributes to triumph.

However, Flat Out is the safer option at 5/1, while Stay Thirsty may be the best value to finish among the places at 14/1.
