Who To Follow On Champions Day

Horse To Follow - Mishriff

The feature race on the classy card is the Group One British Champion Stakes where a superb field of 14 head to post looking to follow in some superb footsteps.

John Gosden has a very good record in this race landing two of the last three renewals we fancy him to land the contest this year with Mishriff.

The three year old has exceeded expectations this term being unbeaten on all three of his starts to date, starting in the Listed Newmarket Stakes where he saw off his highly touted stablemate Waldkonig.

He then stepped up to the French Derby at Chantilly and he landed the event in fine style, pulling away from a talented field to take the first Group One of his career.

Gosden went with the approach that if its not broke, don't fix it and he sent him back to France for the Group Two Prix Guillaume daEUR and although only a small field took to post he landed the spoils nicely.

Having swerved the Arc the colt is in flying form and should be fresh for this event with the heavy ground playing to his strengths having already won on the surface this season.

Trainer To Follow - John Gosden

John Gosden has one of the best records of any trainer on Champions Day having landed a joint eight winners with Aidan O'Brien since the inauguration of the meeting.

Again, on Saturday he has some superb chances of coming away with more winners with at least three big chances across the group races on the day.

In the Long Distance Cup he fields the superstar Stradivarius going back to a staying trip at odds of 11/10, Palace Pier in the QE at odds against and the second favourite Mishriff for the Champion Stakes.

The handler has a decent record at the track this season with 10 wins and 11 places from 58 runners which sees him pose an 18% strike rate.

Jockey To Follow - Pierre-Charles Boudot

The french rider Pierre-Charles Boudot has a superb book of rides at Ascot on Saturday and should be followed with his mounts being at big prices.

The Arc winning rider sits on One Master in the Champion Sprint Stakes having won at the Arc meeting two weeks ago in her third straight victory in the Prix de la Foret.

Another one of his stand out rides on the day comes in the feature Champion Stakes with Skalletti who looks the value angle in the race at 10/1.

Boudot has been in flying form back in France over the last two weeks with 18 winners form 69 rides which sees him running at a 26.09% strike rate.
