Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, $2 million, 1 1/16 miles, 2-year-old fillies

10 Noted and Quoted Bob Baffert No match for Union Strike in Debutante, but really improved winning Chandelier going long over track 7-2
9 Union Strike Craig Dollase Contender off Del Mar Debutante win, but passed two-turn prep, now races for a new barn; mixed signals 5-1
12 American Gal Bob Baffert Won her first two starts with style, but sprinting against much lesser; her post sure isn't a bargain 6-1
2 With Honors Keith Desormeaux Game in close second in Chandelier after winning first two on turf; could face more pace pressure here 6-1
3 Valadorna Mark Casse Humbled only maidens most recently, but looked good doing it going long at Keeneland; should only improve 8-1
4 Yellow Agate Christophe Clement Just got up to win Frizette in modest time, but feel she can do better; this will also be her route debut 10-1
11 Daddys Lil Darling Ken McPeek Form looks okay with a win in the Pocahontas, a second in the Alcibiades; they were slow races though 12-1
8 Dancing Rags Graham Motion Took a step forward with Lasix added in upsetting the Alcibiades, but the Beyer Speed Figure she earned was weak 12-1
7 Jamyson 'n Ginger Rudy Rodriguez Earned a Beyer so huge in maiden win at Belmont that it begs skepticism, especially since it was in slop 12-1
5 Sweet Loretta Todd Pletcher Made it 3 for 3 with a shared win in Spinaway; purposely trained up to this, her first two-turn outing 12-1
6 Champagne Room Peter Eurton Soundly beaten fourth in the Chandelier and doesn't appear to be progressing the way you'd want 20-1
1 Colorful Charades Rudy Rodriguez Was a distant third of six in the Frizette; must take a massive leap forward to contend in this race 30-1
