Six races from Ascot on Channel 4 tomorrow on Champions Day, starting from 12.45 with the Group 2 Long Distance Cup.
This 2 miler attracts some of the best from both the flat and National hunt. Willie Mullins sends over three horses from his County Carlow yard including Cheltenham Festival winner Wicklow Brave.
Leading the market are last years’ winner Forgotten Rules, trained by Dermot Weld and Brian Meehan’s Agent Murphy. The latter taking on this extended distance for the first time.
There are a few running tomorrow who have done us some favours this season, Gm Hopkins and Twilight Son spring readily to mind.
The rest of tomorrow’s fixtures contain a flat meeting at Catterick plus three jumps cards.
It is going to be a long hard evening and morning of study plus collating information from various sources.
Back tomorrow with the regular Saturday preview.
