The inaugural British Champions Day will take place this Saturday at Ascot Racecourse in England and will feature five races and total purses of £3 million. The undefeated Frankel (GB) headlines the British Champions Mile (or Queen Elizabeth II Stakes), where he'll face seven rivals. Frankel is currently the 1/3 ante post choice.

In the final race of the day, the Champion Stakes at 10 furlongs, So You Think (NZ) and Nathaniel (IRE) will lead a field of twelve.  Nathaniel is a perfect 2-for-2 at Ascot, but all of his wins have come at 12 furlongs, not ten.  Mares Midday (GB) and Snow Fairy (IRE) will challenge the boys in the Champion Stakes.

Below are the entries, post positions and current best odds (via Racing Post) for Saturday's British Champions Day.

I'll have a closer look at these races a little later.
