Qipco Champion Stakes - Addeybb

The weather forecast over the last few days has seen masses of rain fall on the Berkshire track seeing the outer track waterlogged and likely to be abandoned ahead of the card on Saturday.

With more rain set to fall it plays into the hands of the horses that enjoy soft or even heavy conditions and Addeybb is one of those horses seeing his odds of 10/1 last week now into as short as 11/4 at most high street bookmakers.

The gelding is well known for how much enjoys the rain and testing conditions and that is exactly what he will get at the weekend and this has been the main thought process behind the gamble on him.

During his career the five year old son of Pivotal has won seven times with his best performances coming in the Listed Wolferton Stakes at Royal Ascot and the Group Three Rose Of Lancaster Stakes at Haydock this season.

Both of those runs had plenty in common with the main factor being the ground conditions being very wet and perfect for Addeybb.

William Haggas has been quiet of late and will be looking to round off his season in fine style and his gelding could be the key to doing that.

British Champions Sprint Stakes - The Tin Man

The first contest of the day on Saturday at Ascot is the Group One British Champion Sprint Stakes over six furlongs and the horse that will love the muddy conditions is the veteran seven year old The Tin Man.

The James Fanshawe trained gelding has been a real performer for his connections over the years and may be now becoming towards the end of his career but could sign off with a bang.

The Tin Man loves soft and heavy conditions putting in his best performances in these conditions and his best runs have been in the 2018 Group One Sprint Cup at Haydock an Diamond Jubilee Stakes at 2017 Royal Ascot.

He is a serious sprint horse that has shown his class in big races throughout his career and when it has come to heavy conditions he has never finished outside the top three and that is a huge piece of form heading into British Champions Day.

He is currently 9/1 and if declared to run on Saturday and the rain continues to fall he will be a much shorter price.

Queen Elizabeth II Stakes - The Revenant

The final horse to follow at Ascot at the weekend who loves muddy underfoot is french raider The Revenant who will not be known to many punters but looks a worthy contender in the Queen II Elizabeth Stakes.

Trainer Francis-Henri Graffard brings over his four year old to compete for Group One glory in Britain for the first time since he has been with this trainer.

The Revenant during this career has raced 10 times winning eight of them with one of them coming in England at Epsom when with trainer Hugo Palmer.

Under Graffard the gelding has landed Group Two and Three races with ease with the majority of his victories coming on either soft, very soft or heavy conditions which makes him perfect for the weekend.

This horse revels in the muddy, swampy turf conditions when running and has been overly consistent throughout his 10 race career which makes him a huge player at the weekend.

He has been a massive mover in the market since the start of October with the French raider being available at 25/1 just 10 days ago and is now as short at 5/2.
