Winner offering enhanced 5/1 on Shared Belief winning Breeders' Cup Classic

Santa Anita will stage the Breeders' Cup again this season and Shared Belief is the Classic pick

Winner are offering punters an enhanced 5/1 on Shared Belief winning the Breeders' Cup Classic and we're tipping the superstar to make the bookies pay on Saturday evening.

Three-year-old entries dominate the market for this year's Breeders' Cup Classic and Shared Belief gets the nod to walk away with the lion's share of the $5million in prize money up for grabs at Santa Anita.



Jerry Hollendorfer's charge is unbeaten in six starts and will be chasing a hat-trick of Grade 1 victories, having landed the Pacific Classic Stakes at Del Mar and the Awesome Again Stakes over Saturday's course and 1m 1f distance.

Although only getting up by a neck to beat Fed Biz here last time out, the son of Candy Ride is expected to come on again for that run and had previously been hugely impressive when accounting for English raider Toast Of New York.

A stall six draw certainly hasn't harmed the gelding's chances and jockey Mike Smith said: "I hope he gets away a little better than in the Pacific Classic and I can get a good position into the first turn and then work out a trip from there."

Bayern and Moreno look set to set a strong gallop, which should play to the selection's strengths as he loves to lie handy off a strong pace before powering home as others cry enough.



There have been plenty of positive vibes surrounding California Chrome in the build-up to this weekend's contest and he would have to be feared if returning to the form of his Kentucky Derby and Preakness wins.

However, anyone who watched him falter late on in the Pennsylvania Derby will have serious doubts about whether he can reproduce his recent sparkling gallops work in what is likely to become a war of attrition.

Belmont Stakes victor Tonalist does have the profile to thrive in such tough conditions and he did catch the eye when travelling strongly to land the Jockey Club Gold Cup at the same track in September.

Shared Belief may just have the edge in speed to get first run on that rival, though, and can hold on for a famous win.

Selection: Shared Belief
