Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf, $2 million, 1 1/4 mile turf, fillies and mares 3 & up

8 Lady Eli Chad Brown She's a remarkable story, made all the better by a Flower Bowl victory that makes her a top win threat 5-2
3 Seventh Heaven Aidan O'Brien Was as dull last time out at Ascot as she was terrific beating BC Turf and Arc winner Found two back 3-1
1 Sea Calisi Chad Brown No match for Lady Eli when third in the Flower Bowl, but was coming off a two-month break that day 6-1
7 Sentiero Italia Kiaran McLaughlin Very game finishing second to Lady Eli in the Flower Bowl, although she controlled a comfortable pace 10-1
11 Queen's Trust Michael Stoute Has picked up minor shares in Group 1's in her last three starts, but without really threatening to win 12-1
5 Al's Gal Mike Maker Has gone from a $35,000 claimer to a Grade 1 stakes winner, but must improve more to contend here 15-1
2 Catch a Glimpse Mark Casse One-time top 3-year-old grass filly flopped in the QE II; can do better, but might not be good enough here 15-1
13 Nuovo Record Makoto Saito Japanese mare has that one race four starts ago last December that would put her in the picture here 15-1
12 Pretty Perfect Aidan O'Brien Off her European form, the Group 2 level appears to be her ceiling right now, so she must improve 15-1
4 Avenge Richard Mandella She's vastly improved, though the Rodeo Drive she won at distance over course was not a strong race 20-1
6 Zipessa Michael Stidham In career form, but the Rodeo Drive she was second in wasn't a tough spot; distance also is a question 20-1
10 Kitcat Sebastian Silva Has a right to improve off her recent U.S. bow off a layoff; that said, Chilean filly looks in over her head 30-1
9 Ryans Charm Patrick Gallagher Peruvian star will be meeting much, much tougher in her U.S. debut, and off a June layoff, to boot 30-1
