The scratch of returning champion Magician has left Saturdays $3 million Breeders Cup Turf a wide open affair. The Grade 1 race has drawn an international field of twelve to compete in the mile and a half contest.

Flintshire (GB) has been installed as the morning line favorite at odds of 7-2 for trainer Andre Fabre. The four-year-old son of Dansili (GB) is winless from four starts this year but has been second three times, most notably last time out to Treve in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe (G1). He will have regular rider Maxime Guyon in the irons and they are slated to break from post position seven.

Telescope (IRE) a top threat from the inside post

Second choice at 4-1 on the morning line is Telescope (IRE) for trainer Sir Michael Stoute. The four-year-old son of Galileo (IRE) has been on the board in all five of his starts this year in Great Britain and was last seen finishing third behind the highly regarded Australia in the Juddmonte International (G1). Ryan Moore, who has had the mount for his last eight races, will remain aboard from the rail.

Main Sequence the strongest hope of the United States horses

Also in the field at morning line odds of 6-1 is Main Sequence, undefeated from three starts in the United States for Graham Motion. The five-year-old gelded son of Aldebaran struggled in Great Britain last year but is a perfect three for three this year. He was last seen pulling off a narrow victory in the Turf Classic (G1). John Velazquez will be aboard from post twelve and is replacing Rajiv Maragh, sidelined with injury.
