Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf time, Skip.
Friday November 6 – Race 9: 1 Mile. F.G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf
#1 Oodnadatta (20/1) – These baby turf races are brutally tough. This race has been predominately dominated by the US runners recently with Chad Brown. The Conductor doesn’t see any standouts in here and this filly is lightly raced and improving. He doesn’t think she’s good enough though.
#2 Miss Amulet (12/1) – This is the Conductor’s favorite European. He likes her races visually and she has a strong foundation.
#3 Alda (12/1) – She has strong late pace figures and looks to get a favorable trip with a hot pace in front. She’s dangerous.
*#4 Plum Ali (4/1)
3 wins at 3 different tracks and one of few in here proven around two turns. She’s the one to beat.
#5 Aunt Pearl (3/1) – She is a very talented filly, but the Conductor is against her at a short price here. They are going to fly up front and she’s not going to be able to dictate the race on her terms.
#6 Nazuna (30/1) – This filly doesn’t look to be good enough.
#7 Tetragonal (20/1) – The California turf horses are very weak.
#8 Mother Earth (20/1) – The Conductor isn’t a fan of her recent form.
#9 Madone (10/1) – Again, the California turf horses won’t get played by the Conductor.
#10 Chapanelle (4/1) – She’ll be stretching out for the first time and will be up close to a hot pace. She’s a talented runner that will be over bet and the Conductor will be against her.
#11 Royal Approval (10/1) – Of the two Ward horses, the Conductor prefers this girl at a better price. She looks like she’ll be better with distance and she can also sit off the pace.
#12 Spanish Loveaffair (15/1) – She’s a little bit interesting but was clearly no match for Aunt Pearl last time and gets a tough draw.
#13 Union Gables (20/1) – The Conductor can’t see her working out a trip from here, pass.
#14 Editor At Large (12/1) – She’ll drop to the back of the pack early, so the post isn’t as big of an issue. She’ll get a good setup, is also proven at two turns, and Chad owns this race. She is very intriguing.
Picks: 4 – 2 – 3 – 14 – 11
