Saturday hints at Ascot

It's QIPCO Champions Day at Ascot on Saturday and we felt that it would be worth putting together a preview of the ahorse racing ction and include a few horses that have caught our eye and worth mentioning. Whether you are having a bet on an of the horse racing today or not, we feel the following selections could be worth investment:


1.45 2m 0f Class 1 Qipco British Champions Long Distance Cup (Group 3) – it is very hard to get away from Estimate in the first at Ascot. Seems to have everything dropping right for her, retunring to the venue where she has a 100% record.With only 7 starts, should still have plenty more to offer and the ground and days away from the track should not be against her. At 2/1, price seems fair enough without appearing obvious value.The Aidan O'Brien 3yo Eye Of The Storm is most interesting from bottom weight and could pull something special out of the bag. At 15/2, price catches the eye.


 Eye Of The Storm 15/2 EW

 2.20 6f Class 1 Qipco British Champions Sprint Stakes (Group 2) – Slade Power finished a creditable 2nd last time at Haydock in the Group 1 Betfred Sprint Cup, and with the 4yo still appeaing to be on the upward curve we fancy to go one better and give ireland a winner here.

Silk Slade Power 7/1 EW


2.55 1m 4f Class 1 Qipco British Champions Fillies and Mares Stakes (Group 1) – There is most likely going to be plenty of pace on here, and may just set the race up nicely for Talent who also has ground conditions n her favour.

Silk  Talent 4/1
3.30 Class 1 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (Sponsored By Qipco) (British Champions Mile) (Group 1) – We wrote earlier in the week about Dawn Approach's trainer having only good things to say about the progress of their horse, with Jim Bolger saying the colt was in great shape and recovered from any sickness which followed his disappointing run in the Prix Jacques Le Marois at Deauville in August. We will stick to our guns here with Dawn Approach
Silk  Dawn Approach 7/2

4.05 1m 2f Class 1 Qipco Champion Stakes (British Champions Middle Distance) – Cirrus Des Aigles will likely be a popular selection for punters in this but we are strongly against at the current prices of 6/4 for value reasons. A much better proposition looks to be the Godolphin horse Farhh.A model of consistency and although he has been off the track a while with problems, the way he dispatched rivals in the Lockinge Stakes in May, a chance has to be taken in our eyes that he will be at 100% for this.

Silk  Farhh 7/2
4.45 Class 2 Qipco Future Stars Apprentice Handicap – A fiercely competitive handicap to finish the day and we would advise not to get too carried away here.

Have a great day and a great weekend guys!
