'I want to be against Kameko': double-figure fancies for Keeneland bonanza

Ron Wood and Sean O'Sullivan join Maddy Playle to preview the two-day meeting

Keeneland: stages this year's Breeders' Cup
1 of 1

The Racing Postcast with Paddy Power returns as Maddy Playle is joined by international racing experts Ron Wood and Sean O'Sullivan for a special episode to preview the 2020 Breeders' Cup at Keeneland.

Sean and Ron explain what it takes to pick a winner at the Kentucky track and how American racing fundamentally differs from what we're used to seeing in Europe. 

They are keen to take on the favourites in the opening two Grade 1s, the Juvenile Turf and Juvenile Fillies, including a 25-1 tip. Ron is sweet on 6-1 shot in the Juvenile Fillies Turf, while Sean's NAP of the meeting is a 20-1 shot in the Juvenile featuring red-hot favourite Jackie's Warrior. 

Sean and Ron think Gamine could be vulnerable in the Filly & Mare Sprint, while the panel agree Glass Slippers is likely to struggle in the Turf Sprint. Ron makes a strong case for a 25-1 shot in the race. 

Sean thinks there will be an Irish winner of the Filly & Mare Turf but Ron disagrees and thinks John Gosden holds the key. The team really want to be against Kameko in the Mile and favour Swiss Skydiver over Monomoy Girl in what looks a two-horse race in the Distaff.

The British and Irish dominate the Turf and Ron nominates a 20-1 selection, while Ron and Sean agree on a 7-1 shot in the Classic, where they think favourite Improbable still has questions to answer.
