The Breeders’ Cup Mile traditionally is dominated by European runners and this time around looks to be no exception as Andrew Balding’s Kameko enters the contest as the lukewarm betting choice according to the ante post markets. The winner of the 2000 Guineas back in the summer, Kameko has a difficult run as he tackled different distances before reverting to the 1m that served him so well in the Guineas when he captured the Group 2 Joel Stakes at Newmarket. 

The bookmakers have him priced around a 7/2 or 4/1 listing right now and it will be interesting to follow the money on him as he could wind up going off as second or third choice. 

Peter Miller’s Mo Forza has been out twice this year - victorious both times - and he’ll be looking to win one for California here on the back of his win in the Del Mar Mile and the City of Hope Mile Stakes at Santa Anita. He is priced around an 11/2 listing but may opt for a different race. 

Uni made a big splash at the Breeders’ Cup last year and will be looking to bounce back here with another big victory when it matters most. Chad Brown’s runner got a perfect prep over course and distance in the First Lady Stakes when sent off as the 12/5 second choice. 

She won’t have to improve much in order to make a big impression here so the six-year-old daughter of More Than Ready looks to be a solid price around 6/1. 

Brazilian-bred Ivar was able to command a lot of respect in the Shadwell Turf Mile at Keeneland during their October meet and comes into the Breeders’ Cup Turf with a decent 8/1 ante post price. It would not be a huge surprise to see him in the reckoning but it might be worth playing him on the tote prices as opposed to fixed odds as he could drift substantially.
