On Sunday at Woodbine, the featured race is the $1 million Canadian International Stakes. Scheduled to be run at a mile and a half on the turf, the prestigious Grade 1 has attracted a field of eleven colts and geldings.

Second Step (IRE) tops the competitive field as the morning line favorite at 3-1 odds for trainer Luca Cumani. Bred and owned by Merry Fox Stud, the four-year-old gelding is by Dalakhani and has been on the board in eight of his ten starts. A five-time winner, he notched a Group 1 victory in Germany in August in what was the biggest victory of his career. Andrea Atzeni will be in the irons and they will break from post position four.

North American debut for Cannock Chase

Second choice at odds of 7-2 on the morning line is Cannock Chase for trainer Sir Michael Stoute. Though bred in Kentucky, the bay son of Lemon Drop Kid has raced primarily in Great Britain where he has been on the board in eight of his nine starts with four career victories. He will be competing with Lasix for the first time and will have jockey Ryan Moore aboard from post position two.

Canadian champ trying to regain winning form

Also in the field at morning line odds of 10-1 is Up With the Birds for trainer Graham Motion. The Sovereign Horse of the Year in 2013, the champion son of Stormy Atlantic is a homebred for Sam-Son Farm and has won seven of his nineteen starts. He has gone winless since July of 2014 and was fourth last time out in the Commonwealth Cup (G2). John Velazquez will be aboard from post five.
