*= Denotes Breeders Cup Challenge winner 

The Fugue (GB) has first preference in the Turf 

The Contenders 

Dank (GB): very nice win in the Beverly D Stakes at Arlington last out is definitely one to look out for in here, unfortunately I expect she will be at a short price. The Beverly D was also her first start on US soil and showed she definitely likes firm going and she will get firm going at Santa Anita which will definitely enhance her chances. 

Laughing(IRE): four starts and four wins this year for Laughing, she has racked up a very impressive roster of wins. She took down the grade three Eatontown Handicap at Monmouth in June then took down the grade one Diana Stakes at Saratoga before winning the grade two Ballston Spa Handicap also at Saratoga. In her last out she took down her second grade one win of the season in the grade one Flower Bowl Stakes at Belmont Park. She is probably the best hand the Americans have to defeat the Europeans in here and will probably be your post time favorite if The Fugue doesn't run here. 

Tiz Flirtatious: has always been right there and will be really hard to beat in here the distance suits her and already proved she loves Santa Anita. She rolled home to win the Rodeo Drive Stakes at Santa Anita last out and will be very hard to beat in here. 

Alterite(FR): ran a credible second in the grade one QE II Challenge Cup last out to Kitten's Dumplings. Since moving to the barn of Chad Brown the filly has sported a win in the grade one Garden City and the second in the QE II Challenge Cup, would need to step it up a little bit to compete well here but don't be surprised if she manages to run third or fourth. 

Emollient: this very versatile filly has sported wins on dirt turf and synthetic she showed a new demension last out in winning the grade one Spinster. She showed that she has learned how to rate kindly and can now beat you from anywhere on the racetrack she will be really difficult in here. Only problem is she either wins or you can't find her so in my opinion though one definitely one to look out for she is a bet against. 

Kitten's Dumplings: this one has been really tough all year and has managed to always be right there at the end. I like how she seems to keep progressing and will only get better as she gets older being by Kitten's Joy. 

Lady Of Shamrock: this poor filly never seems to get the pace she needs though when she does get the pace she is unbeatable. There doesn't seem to be much speed in here so, I feel she might be a bet against, but I wouldn't be surprised if she lights up the tote at a price. 

Marketing Mix: one of the best older grass mares the US has to offer ran a tough second in the Rodeo Drive last out. I feel that she definitely has a huge shot in here with there not being to much speed in here she could very well get a jump on the closers and hold them off like she almost managed last year.  
Qushchi (GB): this one would need to make a major jump forward to pull this one off but if anyone can get a horse to do that its Graham Motion. She ran an okay fourth last out in the Flower Bowl it was a good learning experience and she might take enough of a jump forward to hit the board here. 

Vionnet: this is another who would need to take a major jump forward to win here but another that I wouldn't be surprised if she managed third or fourth. 

Romantica (GB): the only European in here and definitely one to be reckoned with. She ran seventh last out in the grade one Prix Vermeille I think she will jump back from that effort and go back to her winning ways here against this relatively weak field.

Good Magic is the type of horse that needs racing to get fit and he proved that in spades in the Bluegrass. Many are doubting the final time in the Bluegrass but if you watch closely his ears were flipping every which way and he wasn't entirely focused on the task at hand in other words there is plenty left in the tank. I'm not as concerned with his final time in the Bluegrass as he ran fast enough in the Breeders Cup Juvenile in the later stages of the race to almost guarantee he's going to love the Derby distance. Chad Brown is one of the greatest trainers in the game right now and he knows how to get a horse to peak on the right day, and he's always held this colt in high regard. I have no doubt or qualms that he …
