The greatest day in British Flat racing history is nearly upon us!

The equine and human stars of the European Flat racing season are heading to Ascot on Saturday 15th October for the ground-breaking climax to the QIPCO British Champions Series.

The Royal racecourse, with Her Majesty The Queen in attendance, will sizzle with anticipation on the inaugural QIPCO British Champions Day, the richest raceday ever staged in this country, on Saturday 15 October.

Can the world’s best racehorse, Frankel, make it nine-out-of-nine in the £1m Queen Elizabeth II Stakes and stamp himself as the ultimate equine specimen and one of the turf’s all-time greats? Or will France’s champion miler, Immortal Verse, do the unthinkable and stop him in his tracks?

Can Nathaniel, officially the world’s top middle distance horse this year, emerge victorious in Britain’s richest race ever horserace, the £1.3m QIPCO Champion Stakes? Or can Twice Over pull off a remarkable Champion Stakes hat-trick and, together with Frankel, help Sir Henry Cecil secure his first UK trainer’s title in nearly 20 years?

Will we see Frankie Dettori’s trademark flying dismount from Blue Bunting after the £250,000 Fillies & Mares Stakes (dual Oaks heroine Dancing Rain and the fast improving Vita Nova will have a big say in that) or from Opinion Poll after the £200,000 Long Distance Cup (when Gold Cup winner, Fame And Glory, may be in opposition)?  Can the Lee Westwood-owned Hoof It hit the big time in the £250,000 Sprint which looks like attracting nearly all of Europe’s top speed merchants?
