Jason Weaver: My five to follow at the Breeders’ Cup meeting on Friday

Jason Weaver isn’t called ‘the Shark’ for nothing and we’ve asked him to get his teeth into the Breeders’ Cup meeting at Churchill Downs…


19:21 – Soldiers Call

Soldiers Call has been a model of consistency all season and his last run at Longchamp was nothing short of spectacular when only beaten a neck at the highest level. He’s been given an inside draw and he’ll also be full of legal medication, so he can make the Yanks go.

20:00 – The Mackem Bullet

The Mackem Bullet has already proven herself against a very tough company when chasing home Fairyland on a couple of occasions. She looks as if the step up in distance to a mile will be perfect. She’s going to fly under the radar for a small outfit and rates as a very decent each way chance.

20:40 – Jaywalk

Jaywalk quickly established herself as a Group 1 performer when winning last time out at Belmont over a mile. She also has that easy run style of going forward and not getting in the kickback. Judging by the weather forecast that is going to be an asset and she can make it the fourth win from just five starts in this one.

21:22 – Anthony Van Dyck

Anthony Van Dyck is taking the best juvenile form with him that we have to offer. The fact that he has been drawn out in stall number 14 makes his task much tougher. However, the juvenile crop over in America doesn’t look that spectacular and his class will see him through.

22:05 – Complexity

Complexity rates as a nap on the first of two spectacular days racing, he was an easy winner of his maiden and stepped up in the Champagne Group 1 on only his second start to win easily. His top class handler Chad Brown is not hiding the fact either and we can expect a special performance here.
