Timeform on Modern Games

Timeform provide the three best bets at the Breeders' Cup from Del Mar on Friday.

#8 Averly Jane - Del Mar R6 (21:50)

Averly Jane hails from the barn that has won the last two renewals of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint and should take plenty of catching from the front. The Richard Hannon stable has yet to saddle a Breeders' Cup winner but Armor should make a bold bid for them, while Go Bears Go can also put up a decent showing for the European challengers.

#9 Koala Princess - Del Mar R8 (23:10)

Plenty in with chances in an open-looking race, but it may be that Koala Princess is capable of remaining unbeaten. She showed a nice turn of foot to win at Kentucky Downs over 6.5f last time and is bred to stay a mile. Malavath won a Group 2 in France last time and is feared most, while Hello You may come out best of the rest.

#1 Modern Games - Del Mar R10 (00:30)

This can go the way of the Europeans, with Modern Games' inside post swaying it towards him over Dubawi Legend, who's marooned on the wide outside. Charlie Appleby's son of Dubawi was a clear-cut winner of a Group 3 at Newmarket last time and could still have more to offer. Chad Brown's Portfolio Company looks the best of the home team.
