 Telescope  M. Stoute  R. Moore Classy European has been pointing to this for months and like Flintshire, he is in brilliant hands 3-1 4-1
 Twilight Eclipse  T. Albertrani  J. Castellano Also a hard hitter, and also as good as he's ever been, but the opposition gets much deeper here 15-1 12-1
 Imagining  C. McGaughey  J. Rosario Hard hitter is better than ever, but I'm not sure he wants to go this far at this level of competition 15-1 12-1
 Brown Panther  T. Dascombe  R. Kingscote Irish St. Leger winner only here because he ran off before the Can. International, and was scratched 8-1 8-1
 Hangover Kid  J. Servis  J. Lezcano Has been close to Imagining and Big Blue Kitten in the past, but that won't get it done in this race 30-1 30-1
 Finnegans Wake  P. Miller  J. Talamo Did finish second in the local prep, which was not a strong one; fasct is, he has never been this good 30-1 30-1
 Flintshire  A. Fabre  M. Guyon If this Group 1 winner runs back to his second in the Arc a few weeks ago, he will be a real handful 5-2 7-2
SRC  Magician  A. O’Brien  J. O'Brien      
 Hardest Core  E. Graham  E. Vaz Upset winner of the Arl. Million brings many great stories, but must confirm his big win was no fluke 8-1 10-1
 Starspangled Heat  B. Abrams  C. Nakatani Been struggling all year to find his form, including a loss on Sunday; unlikely he'll locate it in this event 30-1 30-1
 Chicquita  A. O’Brien  L. Dettori She will be running back fairly quickly after hitting the board in a British Champions Day event 10-1 8-1
 Main Sequence  H. Motion  J. Velazquez Has fought his way to win three straight Grade 1 photos in his three U.S. starts; don't underestimate 5-1 6-1
 Big John B  P. D’Amato  M. Smith In raging form since being claimed early this year, but his third in the local prep says he's overmatched 30-1 20-1
