Saturday 19th October Two Bets for British Champions Day !!


On Saturday we have some top quality action on British Champions Day at Ascot.With five group races .Going concentrate on two races the British Champions Sprint at 2.20 & British Champions Fillies & Mares at 2.55

2.20 BRITISH CHAMPIONS SPRINT 6 FURLONGS GROUP 2:
14 Runners declared for British Champions Sprint over 6 furlongs . On official handicap ratings this looks competitive sprint .The three main contenders look to be Maarek , Jack Dexter & Slade Power . 

MAAREK : In great form recently winning group one Prix De L 'Abbaye at Longchamp last time.Has fantastic record over 5 or 6 furlongs on soft / heavy ground (1121212331141).Also won this race last year .Obvious claims with conditions sure to suit .

JACK DEXTER :Improving sprinter with good record on soft ground .Won group three Chipchase stakes over 6 furlongs at Newcastle in June on soft ground ,Also Finished good third in Ayr Gold Cup  last time under top weight .

SLADE POWER :Consistent Sprinter winning 6 times from 14 starts .Won twice this season in group three company at Curragh . Also finished creditable second in group one Sprint Cup at Haydock last time behind Gordon Lord Byron .Seems to handle any ground .

VERDICT : Last years winner MAAREK will relish these testing ground conditions .The return to 6 furlongs in group two company will also suit and looks the one beat here .Odds around 3-1 look good value.

Of the others both Jack Dexter & Slade Power are decent sorts with each-way claims ,though will both need produce career best efforts to land this group two contest .

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

BRITISH CHAMPIONS FILLIES & MARES 12 FURLONGS GROUP 1 :
9 runners declared for 12 furlong fillies & mares G1 championship .On official figures this looks another competitive race with the two main contenders being Dalkala & Talent  

DALKALA :Decent French filly winning 6 from 12 starts .Won 10 furlong G2 Middleton Stakes at York in May .Returned to winning ways last time winning G1 Prix De L ' Opera over 10 furlongs on soft ground .Should go well with conditions to suit .

TALENT : Impressive winner of Epsom Oaks in June beating stable companion Secret Gesture by an easy 3.75 lenghs on softish ground .Bounced back to form last time finishing creditable second in St Leger at Doncaster behind Leading Light again on softish ground .Will be suited returning to fillies & mares company.

THE LARK : Finished fair third in Epsom Oaks behind Talent in June.Returned to form last time winning Park Hill Stakes at Doncaster over 14 furlongs in good style,Will also be suited by soft Ground conditions . 

VERDICT : TALENT looks to have plenty in her favour here after running excellent second in St Leger last time against the colts.Seems well suited to soft surface and won't have any problems returning to 12 furlongs .Odds around 7-2 look very fair.

Of the others The Lark could go well at decent odds ,has bit to find with Talent ,though was good winner of Park Hill Stakes last time and  ground conditions will suit .
