1:45 Qipco British Champions Long Distance Cup (Group 3) Cl1 2m

ILE DE RE

Notes: Step up but will love the ground especially if it gets worse. Danger for me in this race is Fame And Glory.

2:20 Qipco British Champions Sprint Stakes (Group 2) Cl1 6f

WIZZ KID

E/W THE CHEKA


Notes: Prix de l'Abbaye winner (heavy), no penalty, cheekpieces & can go 6f. All looks good to me. The Cheka looks good for the each way punter, poor last time but don't let that put you off. My danger in this race is Maarek.

2:55 Qipco British Champions Fillies´ And Mares´ Stakes (Group 2) Cl1 1m4f

DANCING RAIN

E/W LA POMME D'AMOUR


Notes: It might not read well for Dancing Rain but I'm prepared to give her a chance as shes come good for me before when winning the Oaks. I like La Pomme D'Amour, has won on soft & v soft ground & horses from Fabre should not be dismissed lightly. Main dangers are obviously Great Heavens / Sapphire.

3:30 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes Sponsored By Qipco (British Champions Mile) (Group 1) Cl1 1m

CITYSCAPE

Notes: Clearly Excelebration has a strong chance & solid credentials but I'm siding with Cityscape. Was 2nd to Excelebration in France in August. My main danger in this... Could the Queens Carlton House spring a surprise???

4:05 Qipco Champion Stakes (British Champions Middle Distance) (Group 1) Cl1 1m2f

Notes: I'm leaving this race alone. Everyone in the UK has theirs eyes on one horse, Frankel. Their is a question mark about the testing ground but surely that will not deny what may well be his farewell race. Should & thats a should, anything go wrong then Cirrus can pick up the pieces as Peslier is a determined jockey who will want to crash the party...

4:45 Qipco Future Stars Apprentice Handicap Cl2 7f

HIGHLAND COLORI,

E/W FORGOTTEN HERO


Notes: Wide open but I'll take these two.
