2012 British Champions Day: Entries, Post Positions & Best Odds

New, 4 comments

A look at the entries, post positions and best odds for the 2012 British Champions Day at Ascot on Saturday, October 20th.

Alan Crowhurst

The 2012 British Champions Day is shaping up to be a fantastic showcase of thoroughbred talent and, perhaps, the final race in the career of the brilliant Frankel (GB). The five stakes races that comprise the British Champions Day are the Long Distance Cup, Sprint Stakes, Fillies' and Mares' Stakes, Champions Mile (Queen Elizabeth II Stakes) and the Champions Stakes. The Queen will be in attendance on Saturday to watch her horse, Carlton House (GB), run in the race named after her.

Currently, the ground is rated as "Soft" at Ascot. Steady rain over the next two days is likely to lead to a Heavy course on Saturday morning. How that will affect Frankel and the rest of the contenders remains to be seen.

The day kicks off with the Long Distance Cup at 1:45pm local time (8:45am Eastern / 5:45am Pacific). The feature race, the British Champions Stakes with Frankel, will go to post at 4:05pm (11:05am Eastern / 8:05am Pacific).

Below are the race conditions, post times (Eastern), entries, post positions and best odds for the 2012 British Champions Day stakes card. Odds information via the Racing Post.
