NEW TO PADDY POWER?

If you like, gallop over there now to start swotting up – otherwise here is a quick round up of the six renewals on today’s mega-rich card.

The opening race sees Trueshan meet senior stayer Stradivarius in the QIPCO British Champions Long Distance Cup at 1.25pm. Alan King’s rising star romped to victory in last year’s renewal and the pair met for the first time this season in the Prix du Cadran at the start of this month, with Trueshan scoring a comfortable victory.

A field of 20 are set to contest the QIPCO British Champions Sprint Stakes at 2pm. Dragon Symbol has hit the post on a number of occasions this season and trainer Archie Watson will be hoping his colt can finally get his nose in front.

Snowfall will attempt to get back to winning ways in the QIPCO British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes at 2.35pm after failing to fire in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and Aidan O’Brien’s runner faces seven rivals including Albaflora and Invite.

The hotly-anticipated battle between star milers Palace Pier and Baaeed takes place at 3.10pm in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes. Master Of The Seas, Alcohol Free and last year’s winner The Revenant add further spice to the mix.

The feature – the QIPCO Champion Stakes – at 3.50pm sees Epsom Derby hero Adayar race Mishriff for the second time after getting the better of the Saudi Cup winner in the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot in July.

We conclude with the 20-runner Balmoral Handicap at 4.30pm which is likely to see John & Thady Gosden’s hat-trick seeker Sunray Major heading the betting.

You can live stream all six of the races – well, there’s a tiny delay – on paddypower.com or tune in for coverage with Ed Chamberlin and the rest of the ITV Racing gang on ITV from 1pm.
