Channel Maker

J: Jose L Ortiz
T: William Mott
N/A
Age: 8
Weight: 9-0
OR: N/A
Days: 22

Trainer William Mott’s second runner in this and one of the big outsiders at a huge price. Has not achieved much at all compared to other rivals so easy to dismiss here.

Trainer’s other runner makes much more appeal at the top end of the market.

Broome

J: Irad Ortiz Jr
T: A P O'Brien
N/A
Age: 6
Weight: 9-0
OR: N/A
Days: 34

Aidan O Brien’s second runner in the race. Broome has won eight races from 1m to 1m 4f on ground varying from good to firm to good to soft.

Finished 9 lengths behind Alpinista when eighth of 20 on his latest outing in the Group 1 Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp last month.

Needs to take a big step forward and could well do so under the guidance of Irad Ortiz Jr. Cannot ignore at a double digit price.

Very disappointing last time out after previously making it 2-2 so going on all known form, it is very hard seeing him be a threat to others here.

He did win over this course and distance, but that came in 2020.Looks to play a minor role like a few in here.

OR: N/A
Days: 22

One of two for trainer H Graham Motion and the pair look to both have a similar chance. Seems to like soft ground and won over course and distance last time out.

This came in the Grade 3 Sycamore Stakes last month, beating Temple by a length.

May have place claims at the very least at such a big price. Potentially a surprise player.

Bye Bye Melvin

J: Fergal Lynch
T: H Graham Motion
N/A
Age: 5
Weight: 9-0
OR: N/A
Days: 28

Trainer H Graham Motion’s second runner in the line-up, but one who may struggle to stay the required trip of 1m 4f.

His last few runs have come at Keeneland so at least he has experience of the course but may not count for much here.

Opposable in this sort of field.

Frankie Dettori

Mishriff

J: Frankie Dettori
T: John & Thady Gosden
N/A
Age: 5
Weight: 9-0
OR: N/A
Days: 34

Mishriff has racked up millions in prize money over the years as he has been somewhat of a global superstar. He has not been at his best in recent times, but always gives you a run for your money.

Can draw a line through his last performance as that Arc at Longchamp was ran in such heavy conditions.

With Frankie Dettori back on board, it would be foolish to rule out a horse of this quality. He may be able to bounce back with an epic performance here, one to be excited about.

Tyler Gaffalione

Master Piece

J: Tyler Gaffalione
T: Michael McCarthy
N/A
Age: 6
Weight: 9-0
OR: N/A
Days: 62

Steps up to 1m 4f after previously winning at 1m 1f where that success came at Del Mar in July. Failed to back that win up as he then came second when stepping up an extra two furlongs.

Needs to take a step forward here to prove he can run at a longer trip. Risky and hard to fancy.

J: James Doyle
T: Charlie Appleby
N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-0
OR: N/A
Days: 41

Trainer Charlie Appleby’s second runner in this and currently the second favourite too.

This son of Dubawi seems to have hit form just in the right time ahead of this Grade 1 Breeders Cup Turf.He made it 4-4 when winning the Group 1 Preis von Europa at Cologne over 1m 4f in September, beating Sammarco by ¾ lengths.

On for an incredible five-timer and just like his stablemate Nations Pride, this lad demands huge respect.

Faces a very tough assignment and looks to be out of his depth running against other horses who have had more experience and achieved much more than him.

One for another day in weaker looking races. Totally opposable.

War Like Goddess

J: Joel Rosario
T: William Mott
N/A
Age: 5
Weight: 8-11
OR: N/A
Days: 28

Trainer William Mott runs two in this race and the 5 year old mare looks a challenger to all if continuing to show her best form.

She has won seven races from ten career starts which is some going so she can pose a major threat to all once again.

Won on her latest outing in the Grade 1 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Stakes at Belmont last month, beating fellow rival Bye Bye Melvin by 2 ¾ lengths. Highly respected.

One of two for trainer Aidan O Brien where top jockey Ryan Moore takes the ride. This 3 year old son of Galileo showed some encouraging performances when stepping up to Group 3 company, but has failed to make much impression moving on from that.

He will certainly have to be at his best to have a chance here, but that is not ruled out so he has to be of interest. Player.

This 4 year old colt is one of the huge outsiders, therefore he has a lot to prove in this field.

Successful at 1m 3f and 1m 4f on the all-weather which may mean he will struggle a lot on turf.Has a lot to prove and will not find it easy to figure.

N/A
Age: 3

OR: N/A
Days: 49

Jockey and trainer won this race last year with Yibir and Charlie Appleby and team Godolphin have two strong chances in this year’s renewal.

They both top the head of the market, but Nations Pride who is a son of Teofilo looks to have more appeal.

He is currently 2-2 and will sure make a bold bid looking for that hat-trick of wins. Won on his latest outing in the Grade 3 Caesars Jockey Club Derby Invitational Stakes at Belmont and won very impressively, by 6 lengths that day.

Worthy favourite.
