It’s Ascot Champions’ Day next Saturday and it promises to be a thrilling afternoon of action.
With four Group 1 races and one Group 2, and a competitive 1m handicap as the finale, you couldn’t ask for more.
It should be a fitting finale to the 2019 Flat Season.

The programme starts with a Group 1 sprint, where Advertise may head the market, followed by the Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes.
The highlight of the day will be the likely reappearance of Stradivarius in the Champions Long Distance Cup, where he may be taken on by Kew Gardens, followed by the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes, which could see Benbatl joined by Ascot specialist Lord Glitters. Aidan O’Brien will be strongly represented in the Champion Stakes with eight of the early entries.
I hope you will be joining me for what should be a fitting finale to the 2019 Flat Season.
