1pt win War Like Goddess @4/1, 20:40 Keeneland, Saturday

1m4f  Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf (Grade 1) (3yo+) (Turf)  (3yo+)

With everything Charlie Appleby runs either winning or getting beaten in a photo, everything points to Godolphin success here with first string Nations Pride – and I have admittedly got a few quid on him antepost – but the fact of the matter is he’s a very short price on cold hard form. The horses he beat in the Jockey Club Derby at Belmont would get lapped here, and he got a thumping in the Epsom Derby so I’m not sure he’s quite that good. Last year I put up WAR LIKE GODDESS for the Filly & Mares Turf where she arguably should have won, up against arguably a stronger field than this year’s Turf. It looked like she didn’t stay that day but she got a shockingly inefficient ride and has subsequently proven her stamina in her domestic campaign. With Coolmore and Godolphin winning all three turf races on Friday, punters are latching onto Europeans and she’s a nice price at 4/1.
