Who To Follow On Day One Of The Breeders' Cup Meeting

Horse To Follow - Campanelle

Campanelle has a huge chance in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf over a mile on a day where Wesley Ward could have a few winners.

The two year old has been the shining light for the yard this season and the juvenile made her debut at Gulfstream on firm ground and went on to bolt up in a decent field and unlike previous seasons she was one of few Ward runners to get off the mark at the first time of asking.

She was then sent to Royal Ascot in the Group Two Queen Mary Stakes over five furlongs and beat a solid field of runners and the form has since been franked with second, third, fourth and fifth all running credible races since.

She aswell franked the form of that race when landing the Group One Prix Morny at Deauville on her last start, with her showing her versatility on heavy ground, beating another smart field.

Ward considered a return to Britain for last month’s Cheveley Park Stakes, but decided to wait for this event and has and she has a huge chance of extending her unbeaten run to four races if handling the step up in trip.

Trainer To Follow - Bob Baffert

Bob Baffert is a hall of fame American trainer that has had stand out winners at the Breeders' Cup meetings over the years and on Friday he only has two runners that both look to have superb chances.

Baffert has been in the form of his life leading up to the festival having had four winners from his last six runners over the last two weeks which sees him pose a 66.67% strike rate.

His other two runners have also gone one to finish second, which means from his last six runners he has not had a runner outside the top two and on Friday he fields Classier in the final event of the day and Princess Noor in the Juvenile Fillies event.

Jockey To Follow - Frankie Dettori

Frankie Dettori is a jockey that needs no introduction and having had another stand out season in Europe he has some classy rides which could see him land some American winners aswell.

On the Friday the Italian rides the likes of New Mandate for Ralph Beckett and Campanelle for Wesley Ward with both of those horses having stand out chances in Grade One events.

Dettori has had five rides over the last two weeks and has managed to land a winner from those runners which sees him heading into the festival with a 20% strike rate.
