We have an overview of all the races on Champions Day at Ascot, including the runners and latest betting

The UK flat season draws to a close with a fantastic star-strudded card on Saturday at Ascot. We've taken a look at the entries and latest betting for the key races across British Champions Day.

Long Distance Cup

Long Distance Cup Entries 

  • Fujaira Prince
  • Mildenberger

  • Sovereign
  • Spanish Mission
  • Stradivarius
  • Trueshan
  • Dubious Affair
  • Monica Sheriff
  • Search For A Song
  • Dawn Patrol
  • Max Vega
  • Broome


Long Distance Cup Betting

Stradivarius heads the market as the 10/11 favourite. However, after a tough race in the Arc earlier in the month, will the superstar stayer be at his best? Oddschecker users still make the six-year-old the one to beat. He has taken 51% of bets through the market. The likes of Dawn Patrol, Search For A Song and Morando all have their share of supporters, but Stradivarius is by far the most popular horse in the last week for the Long Distance Cup.

  • Chiefofchiefs 
  • Dream Of Dreams 
  • Glen Shiel 
  • Happy Power 
  • Oxted 
  • Speak In Colours

  • Lope Y Fernandez 
  • Starman 
  • One Master 
  • Sonaiyla 
  • Jouska 
  • Onassis 


Sprint Stakes Betting

Dream Of Dreams is the 15/8 favourite here and punters expect Sir Michael Soute’s six-year-old to finish off his season in style. Two victories from his two runs so far this term, 36% of oddschecker users think he will bring up the hat-trick here. Both Cape Byron (14/1) and Happy Power (22/1) have seen some interest, with 12% and 11% of bets in the market respectively. 


Fillies & Mares Stakes

Fillies & Mares Stakes Entries: 

  • Antonia De Vega 
  • Dame Malliot 
  • Manuela De Vega 
  • Mehdaayih 
  • Cabaletta 
  • Even So 
  • Frankly Darling 
  • Gold Wand 
  • Laburnum 
  • Passion 
  • Thundering Nights 
  • Wonderful Tonight


Fillies & Mares Stakes Betting

An open looking race for the Fillies & Mares and the betting activity reflects this. Both the top two in the market, Wonderful Tonight (7/2) and Dame Malliot (9/2) have been well supported. However, a number of other horses at bigger prices have had their supporters too. Mehdaayih (12/1) and Thundering Nights (14/1) have had almost as much money placed on them as the front two in the market. 


Queen Elizabeth II Stakes

Queen Elizabeth II Stakes Entries

  • Century Dream 
  • Circus Maximus 
  • Dark Vision 
  • Escobar 
  • Lancaster House 
  • Lord Glitters 
  • Roseman 
  • Sir Busker 
  • The Revenant 
  • Molatham 
  • Nazeef 
  • Palace Pier 
  • Royal Dornoch 
  • Veracious 


Queen Elizabeth II Stakes Betting

Palace Pier is the odds-on favourite here and punters cannot see past the 8/11 shot. In the last week, the unbeaten three-year-old has taken 57% of bets in the market. The St James’s Palace Stakes winner returns to Ascot for the first time since his brilliant victory in June. The Revenant (9/2) and Circus Maximus (8/1) are second and third in the betting and also the second and third most backed. However, it is all about Palace Pier for punters. 

Champion Stakes

Champion Stakes Entries

  • Addeybb 
  • Desert Encounter 
  • Extra Elusive 
  • Japan 
  • Lord North 
  • San Donato 
  • Skalleti 
  • Magical 
  • Mishriff 
  • Pyledriver 
  • Serpentine


Champion Stakes Betting

Magical is the 7/4 favourite following her brilliant Irish Champion Stakes victory, but is the second-favourite Mishriff that is attracting more punters. At 7/2, oddschecker users think the French Derby winner will be able to topple the favourite. He has won all three of his races so far this season, bypassing the Arc and instead choosing this assignment. The field is full of brilliant horses, but it is all about these two for oddschecker users, namely Mishriff. 


Balmoral Handicap

Balmoral Handicap Entries

  • Raising Sand 
  • Prince Eiji 
  • Kynren 
  • Graignes 
  • Keats 
  • Orbaan 
  • Bell Rock 
  • Solid Stone 
  • Njord 
  • Symbolize 
  • Greenside 
  • Raakib Alhawa 
  • King Ottokar 
  • Ropey Guest 
  • Blue Mist 
  • Raaeq 
  • Tempus 
  • River Nymph 
  • Hortzadar 
  • Alternative Fact 
  • Bear Force One 


Balmoral Handicap Betting

A fiercely competitive handicap to round things off on Champions Day, and as expected, a whole host of horses have seen some support. However, the big mover throughout the week is Keats. As big as 25/1 a few days ago, the three-year-old is now as short as 8/1. He is the most backed horse but only with 13% of bets, which shows just how tight it is in the market. Raaeq is the 5/1 favourite the second most backed with 8/1 chance Tempus the third most backed.
