Filly & Mare Turf, Purse: $2 million, 1 1/4 miles, turf

- Dank Michael Stoute Winner of this race last year was outrun in her two starts this year vs. top company; idle since June 4-1
- Tarfasha Dermot Weld Runner up in the Epsom Oaks last June retains sharp current form, but will she like very firm turf? 5-1
- Secret Gesture Ralph Beckett High class European has been worse than third just once in her career and might like firm footing 6-1
- Stephanie's Kitten Chad Brown Top American hope gained her first career victory at this distance in Flower Bowl; meeting tougher 6-1
- Just The Judge Charles Hills Back on short rest after winning the E. P. Taylor; her Beyer was good, but the field she beat was iffy 8-1
- Chicquita Aidan O'Brien Also back on short rest after hitting the board on British Champion Day; Turf is her first preference 12-1
- Veda Alain de Royer-Dupre Mile is the first preference for this Gr. 1 placed filly; makes sense, all six of her starts were at a mile 12-1
- Abaco Shug McGaughey Ultra consistent, but her late kick might have more punch going shorter, and she's in with better now 15-1
- Dayatthespa Chad Brown Never envisioned her being a 10 furlong horse, but her First Lady win last time was one of her best 20-1
- Emollient Bill Mott Blinkers on helped her win the local prep at distance over course, but she must improve to contend 20-1
- Fiesolana Willie McCreary This would be a big stretch out in distance for her, but she won an Irish Group 1 two starts back 20-1
- L'Amour de Ma Vie Pia Brandt Disappointed as a heavy favorite in Italy most recently; seems a cut below; Distaff first preference 20-1
- Miss Serendipity Ron McAnally Can forgive her last because of a bad post and her prior form is okay; question if she's good enough 20-1
- Parranda Jerry Hollendorfer Another who is as consistent as can be, but she will have to really raise her game to get in the mix 20-1
- Also Eligible (In Order Of Preference):      
- Irish Mission Christophe Clement The other dead-heat third in the Rodeo Drive; hard hitter has never been this good 30-1
- Rusty Slipper Graham Motion Dead-heat third in Rodeo Drive was her best yet, and she must do much better here 30-1
- Stormy Lucy Ed Moger Jr. Has had some tough trips, but she has never won a race against this kind; overmatched 30-1
