Fitch Ratings has downgraded three classes of Morgan Stanley Capital I Trust , series 2008-TOP29. Key Rating Drivers The downgrades were the result of higher modeled losses on performing loans with declines in performance indicative of a higher probability of default. Fitch modeled losses of 4.4 percent of the remaining pool. Expected losses of the original pool are at 4.9 percent, including losses realized to date. Fitch designated 21 loans (19 percent of the pool balance) as Fitch Loans of Concern. No loans were in special servicing as of the November distribution date. Although 80 percent of the loans are reporting a debt service coverage ratio (greater than 1.20x, approximately half of the pool has Fitch loan-to-values greater than 90 percent. As of the November 2013 distribution date, the pool's aggregate principal balance has been reduced by approximately 9.4 percent (including 1 percent in realized losses) to $1.12 billion from $1.23 billion at issuance. One loan is defeased (0.6 percent of the pool). Interest shortfalls are affecting the non-rated class P. Rating Sensitivities The Negative Rating Outlooks reflect the likelihood of a future downgrade should values deteriorate further on highly leveraged loans. While no loans are currently in special servicing, if a significant number of loans transfer to the special servicer, additional downgrades may be possible due to the pool's high leverage and the relatively small tranche sizes of the subordinate classes. In addition, Fitch is modeling 77 percent of the pool as a maturity default, indicating a high refinance risk based on Fitch's stressed refinance constants. The largest contributor to Fitch modeled losses is a 98,772 square foot office property (2 percent of the pool balance) located in Valencia, Calif. The loan remains current; however, the property is approximately 30 percent occupied, as the largest tenant vacated. The remainder of the space has several tenants that occupy less than 1,000 to 6,000 sf each. The second-largest contributor to modeled losses is backed by a 140,204 sf grocery anchored retail center (1.5 percent of the pool balance) in Fredericksburg, Va. The property has experienced cash flow issues due to a decline in occupancy; however, it remains current and per the most recent rent roll, remains anchored by a Giant grocery store on a long-term lease. The third-largest contributor to modeled losses is secured by a 106,674 sf anchored retail property (1.2 percent of the pool balance) in Covington, Wash. The Kohl's anchored retail center has experienced cash flow issues due to a decline in rents although occupancy remains high at a reported 97 percent as of June 2013 .

Fitch does not rate class P, which has been reduced to $3.6 million from $15.2 million due to realized losses. Classes A-1 and A- 2 are paid in full.
