We’re in the final furlong of the Flat season in the United Kingdom and the finishing post is in sight with British Champions Day taking place at Ascot on Saturday.
The fields are starting to take shape with five days to go so we thought we’d take a look at Paddy Power’s antepost betting markets for all six races on the card.
Alan King’s charge got the better of the senior stayer in last year’s renewal at Ascot when Stradivarius only beat one home on soft ground.
The fact geldings are permitted to race sees Wokingham Stakes champ Rohaan, who won a Class 6 handicap off a mark of 55 at Newcastle last December, prominent in our book at 9/2.
Glen Shiel, last year’s winner, is an outsider at 16/1 after a winless campaign.
Love missed the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and, despite a few underwhelming runs of late, last season’s dual Classic winner tops the pile at 5/2 after holding her entry.
Free Wind, seeking a maiden Group 1 success after scoring at Group 2 and Group 3 level, follows at 11/4 with La Petite Coco, who beat Love by a short head in last month’s Blandford Stakes, at the same price.
Listed winner Albaflora is available at 8/1 in our early betting behind the market leaders.
The contest for the one milers could prove to be the best race of the day if all the big guns take their chance.
Baaeed has climbed the ranks over the course of the year and landed his first Group 1 success in the Prix du Moulin de Longchamp last month. William Haggas’ charge is joint-favourite with John & Thady Gosden’s superstar Palace Pier at 13/8.
St Mark’s Basilica’s retirement to stud after his victory in the Irish equivalent means Mishriff tops our early betting at 6/4.
A shade behind at 9/4 is Epsom Derby and King George VI winner Adayar, who stands his ground at the five-day stage.
Addeybb won last year’s renewal and is available at 5s.
John & Thady Gosden train the top two in our antepost market for the final race on British Champions Day.
Aldaary has come in to 7/1 after warming up with a victory in a Class 2 handicap over 7f at Ascot. A maximum of 20 horses can run of the day and 71 still hold entries…
