Saturday's viewers will have nine top races to take in, starting with the Filly & Mares Turf Sprint, where Goodnight Olive heads Echo Zulu in the betting. Wesley Ward's Golden Pal is the favourite to defend his Turf Sprint crown, where he could come up against top European sprint, Highfield Princess.

Jack Christopher will go for his fourth Group One win in the Dirt Mile. Leading European three-year-olds, Nashwa and Above The Curve could then renew their rivalry in the Filly & Mares Turf.

Jackies Warrior tops the betting for the Breeders' Cup Sprint, despite a poor run in the race last year and that surprise defeat to Cody's Wish in the recent Forego Stakes. European runners then dominate the market for the Breeders' Cup Mile, where Kinross heads Modern Games and Real World in the market.

American Oaks and Alabama Stakes winner, Nest is the firm favourite to win the Breeders' Cup Distaff. The 2022 Breeders' Cup comes to a close with the Turf and the Classic. You can see the full betting for both of these huge races on our website.
