Racing Podcast: QIPCO British Champions Day Ascot preview


Ben Linfoot is joined by Cornelius Lysaght, David Johnson and Graham Cunningham to discuss all things QIPCO British Champions Day.

Mixing favourite Champions Day memories with angles into this Saturday's card, our quartet tackle the day chronologically from the Long Distance Cup to the Balmoral Handicap.

Christophe Soumillon's reaction to a hefty fine and whip ban following the inaugural Champion Stakes at Ascot aboard Cirrus Des Aigles dominates the early memories, while Rite Of Passage, Magical and, of course, original poster boy Frankel, are fondly remembered.

There is general agreement when it comes to the QEII, but four different selections are put forward in a tricky-as-ever Champions Sprint and Adayar in the Champion Stakes has prompted a sharp turnarond from one member of the panel.
