Will it settle appropriately in approx 10 hrs refrigerated?

Thanks for all the responses guys, this is my first starter and I'm a little anxious...

I like to give my ale starters 24 hours and lager starters 2-3 days in the fridge. You will definitely lose some yeast but that's a huge starter anyways.

What type of yeast and what is the starting gravity of the beer?

It's Wyeast Denny's Favorite, 1.085.

But this is my first AG (will batch sparge), crushed at Northern Brewer...I'm not banking on 1.085 happening.
