1pt each-way Gina Romantica @12/1, 20:30 Santa Anita, Saturday

1m FanDuel Breeders’ Cup Mile presented by Permanently Disabled Jockey Fund (Grade 1)

Super competitive. The form horse is Songline who bagged two domestic Grade 1s over the summer, but she’s a big mare who likes to come from off the pace and she’s going to have to from her wide post. English Guineas winner Mawj is 4/4 this year and has no negatives as she’s fast, loves the ground and, unlike Songline, is built to nip round these tight bends. I also rate Kelina a good chance as she’s right at home on fast ground and proved in the Foret she has all the necessary speed for this test – unfortunately she’s also got a tough gig in stall 11 and will need some luck. Given the strength of top of the market I’m inclined to look for each-way value and Chad Brown’s GINA ROMANTICA stands out. She’s progressive and should be peaking as this is her fourth start of the season, landing Grade 1 honours over the talented In Italian over the mile last time. She got something of a dream trip but was very impressive running down her stablemate with a sharp turn of foot. Drawn low near the rail I’d expect a ground saving ride to pounce late. At 12/1 she represents healthy each-way value.
