Breeders' Cup Classic hero ACCELERATE bids to end his career on a high by taking this prize and the field quality isn't as strong as he encountered at Churchill Downs. Gunnevera filled the runner-up position on that occasion and can go close again, while City Of Light and Patternrecognition complete the shortlist.
