Very small ante-post book so far.

BC Mile
Deauville 50/1

BC Turf
Ulysses 12/1, 8/1

BC F and M Turf
Shutter Speed 16/1 
Usherette 20/1

Ulysses is the biggest punt by far. Would like to build a bigger book. Missed out on Clemmie for Juvenile Filly Turf at 10s! Now 4s!  BC Mile is the one I think has plenty of juice in. 

Would love to back Suedois but not quoted in UK. Runs tonight in the Shadwell Mile. 16/1 over here and that is way too big imo and can't let him go unbacked. Also backed Destin at 16/1 in Jockey CLub Gold Cup.

Markets are pretty much very mature especially in the Classic and Turf. THe Classic is one race I normally have something in but missed boat on plenty. Definitely didn't see Arrogate's regression coming! In hindsight, should've played for place money but a bit late now! 

Thoughts appreciated

Added:

Suedois 14/1 BC Mile- Kicking myself for not requesting a price before last night. Would surely have been offered perhaps 20/1. Still I can't not have him onside.
Lancaster Bomber 20/1 BC Mile- He could be running this weekend which is a better fit than going for the QE Mile a week later. Tbh, I thought he was unlucky last time out in Canada though he was getting plenty of weight from World Approval.

Can anyone offer any insights into Del Mar? Not familiar with it. I do know Santa Anita so comparisons with that track would be appreciated. Draw bias, pace bias, type of track (wide sweeping turns or tight), etc

Del mar isn’t a track I’m super familiar with and I’m also unsure of it’s tendencies or biases. The dirt track is only 3 years old. Here’s an article with a little insight.
