The $2,000,000 Grade I Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies isn't a deep field with just six two-year-olds having been entered for the race. The M/L however suggest this should be a three-way battle...

If you look at the Morning Line Odds for the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies then you’ll see two very different camps as the race has been split into two. Three fillies who the linemaker at Del Mar think can win the race and three who shall we say, can not.

The Steve Asmussen trained Echo Zulu will go off as favorite. I don’t think there is really any doubt about that. The fact two horses are at least within touching distance of her is a little bit surprising to me. This daughter of Gun Runner has looked mighty fine with back-to-back wins at Grade I level taking out both the Spinaway at Saratoga and Frizette at Belmont. A 4-5 shot seems about right but two others at 5-2? I’m not so sure about that.

Juju’s Map and Hidden Connection both have good wins on their resume. The former won the Grade I Alcibiades at Keeneland having broken her maiden at Ellis Park in early September. That run at Keeneland was more than respectable with no-one remotely challenging her down the stretch.

As for Hidden Connection, a good run in the Grade III Pocahontas makes it two wins from two but I’m just not convinced as yet that she’s on the level of Echo Zulu. If either horse drifted to 4s or 5s then I’d be very interested but to be so close to the favorite - who I think will enjoy more distance - I’m likely to pass.

Tarabi, Sequist and Desert Dawn are all longshots.
