The Best Horse Racing Tips for the 2021 Breeders’ Cup at Del Mar on Friday & Saturday

This year’s Breeders’ Cup meeting takes place at Del Mar racecourse in California, on the West Coast of America. ITV will be covering the action on both Friday and Saturday evenings and we will provide Horse Racing tips, previews and predictions for three Turf races taking place on each day.

Our Tip for the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint:

The Wesley Ward-trained pair of Averley Jane and Twilight Gleaming head the home team in this 5f juvenile sprint. With five of the 12 runners however, Britain and Ireland hold decent claims, with Twilight Jet taken to give the Ward duo most to do.

Leigh Roache’s mount has the favoured inside stall, has a running style which should be suited to the track and with both the distance and ground no problem, is expected to run a big race for Ireland.

Our Tip for the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies’ Turf:

This looks to be a wide-open contest for fillies, with no standout performer among the field of 14. Of the three British runners, the George Boughey-trained Cachet has got the best of the draw in stall 3 and it would be no surprise to see the Aclaim filly go close.

The mount of Luis Saez has been taking on top juvenile company all year, running well without success since winning on her debut at Newmarket back in May. Cachet deserves a change of luck and if taking advantage of her draw, can make the frame at the very least.

Our Tip for the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf:

This one mile Grade 1 for colts and geldings could end up being dominated by juveniles from Britain and Ireland. Modern Games, Dubawi Legend, Albahr and Glounthaune all have leading claims but at a big price it could be worth taking a chance on the Michael Bell-trained Great Max.

Connections have secured the services of the experienced jockey John Velazquez for the son of Wootton Bassett who, while no match for leading two-year-old Native Trail in their two encounters, has achieved enough to suggest he can hold his own in this company.

Our Tip for the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint:

The Kevin Ryan-trained pair of Glass Slippers (winner of the race 12 months ago) and Emaraaty Ana represent Britain in this Grade 1 sprint. The pair may have their work cut out to beat the home team however, in particular the Wesley Ward trio of Golden Pal, Arrest Me Red and Kimari.

Ward has always thought highly of Golden Pal, despite two defeats in Britain, and back on home soil and from stall 3, the mount of Irad Ortiz Jr can fulfil his trainers confidence in the ability of the speedy colt.

Our Tip for the Maker’s Mark Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf:

Despite a couple of strong challengers in William Mott’s War Like Goddess and the Japanese mare Loves You Only, a light campaign this season could work in favour of Ballydoyle’s multiple Oaks winner Love.

For one reason or another the daughter of Galileo has missed a couple of big targets recently, resulting in Ryan Moore’s mount having only her fifth run of the year, and first in almost two months. If anywhere her best, this talented filly should have too much class for her rivals.

Our Tip for the Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf:

The 1m 4f Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Turf looks destined to go the way of Britain or Ireland, the only question is, with which horse? Arc runner-up Tarnawa, winner of the race 12 months ago, fully deserves her place as clear favourite. But at around odds of 5/4, the five-year-old mare offers little in the way of value.

Trainer Charlie Appleby has enjoyed a great season and his two runners, Yibir and Walton Street, give the Godolphin handler a good chance of capping what has been an exceptional year, with the former the more fancied of the pair.

While having to play second fiddle to stablemates Adayar and Hurricane Lane, Yibir has improved as the season progressed, culminating in an impressive victory in the Jockey Club Derby at Belmont Park in September. A repeat of that performance would put William Buick’s mount in with a great chance of victory.
