- Flintshire Andre Fabre If this Group 1 winner runs back to his second in the Arc a few weeks ago, the others are in trouble 7-2
- Telescope Michael Stoute Classy European has been pointing to this for months and like Flintshire, he is in brilliant hands 5-1
- Magician Aidan O'Brien The 2013 BC Turf winner was too close early in the Arlington Million even if the fractions were slow 6-1
- Main Sequence Graham Motion Has fought his way to win three straight Grade 1 photos in his three U.S. starts; don't underestimate 6-1
- Brown Panther Tom Dascombe Irish St. Leger winner only here because he ran off before the Can. International, and was scratched 12-1
- Hardest Core Edward Graham Upset winner of the Arl. Million brings many great stories, but must confirm his big win was no fluke 12-1
- Secret Gesture Ralph Beckett Narrowly missed in a Group 2 against males two back, but the F&M Turf is her first preference 12-1
- Imagining Shug McGaughey Hard hitter is better than ever, but I'm not sure he wants to go this far at this level of competition 15-1
- Just The Judge Charles Hills Back on short rest after winning the E. P. Taylor; however, the F&M Turf is also her first choice 15-1
- Twilight Eclipse Tom Albertrani Also a hard hitter, and also as good as he's ever been, but the opposition gets much deeper here 15-1
- Big Blue Kitten Chad Brown His gaining second in the Canadian International was his best effort this year; back in only two weeks 20-1
- Chicquita Aidan O'Brien Another who will be running back quickly after hitting the board in a British Champions Day event 20-1
- Big John B Philip D'Amato In raging form since being claimed early this year, but his third in the local prep says he's overmatched 30-1
- Hangover Kid Jason Servis Has been close to Imagining and Big Blue Kitten in the past, but that won't get it done in this race 30-1
- Also Eligible (In Order Of Preference):      
- Finnegans Wake Peter Miller Did finish second in the local prep, which wasn't strong; has never been this good 30-1
- Starspangled Heat Barry Abrams Been struggling all year to find his form and it's unlikely he'll locate it in this event 30-1
