ITV Racing tips: one key runner from each of the six Champions Day races on ITV

1 of 1

1.25 Ascot
Qipco British Champions Long Distance Cup, 2m, Group 2

Stradivarius bids to bounce back to regain his position at the top of the staying division against last year's winner Trueshan, who won the Goodwood Cup and the Prix du Cadran at Longchamp this month.

SPOTLIGHT TIP:Trueshan

Soft preferable, good to soft probably okay; quite quick return to action; the one to beat

2.00 Ascot
Qipco British Champions Sprint Stakes, 6f, Group 1

Title rivals Oisin Murphy and William Buick have leading chances on Dragon Symbol, who was second in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot, and Godolphin's Creative Force, a Group 3 winner.

SPOTLIGHT TIP:Creative Force

Won 7f Jersey here in June; strong-finishing 5th in the July Cup; interesting back here

2.35 Ascot
Qipco British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes, 1m4f, Group 1

Dual Classic winner Snowfall is undoubtedly the star attraction after being diverted from the Champion Stakes, but she still faces talented opposition, including Yorkshire Oaks runner-up Albaflora and Invite.

SPOTLIGHT TIP:Snowfall

The Arc was on heavy and this is a big drop in class but some doubts have been introduced

3.10 Ascot
Queen Elizabeth II Stakes,1m, Group 1

Exciting three-year-old Baaeedattempts to extend his unbeaten record to six when taking on an all-star field, which includes five-time Group 1 winner Palace Pier, Sussex Stakes winner Alcohol Free and Benbatl.

SPOTLIGHT TIP:Baaeed

Up-and-coming miler who landed the Moulin at Longchamp last time; still unbeaten

3.50 Ascot
Qipco Champion Stakes, 1m2f, Group 1

Britain's richest race has attracted one of its most competitive line-ups with Derby and King George winner Adayar once again taking on Mishriff, winner of the Juddmonte International and the Saudi Cup.

SPOTLIGHT TIP:Adayar

Derby and King George winner; Arc didn't go his way; leading claims if at his best

4.30 Ascot
Balmoral Handicap,1m

The Balmoral Handicap is always a fascinating betting heat and Mr Ascot himself, Frankie Dettori, looks to have a leading chance with Sunray Major, a convincing winner at the track earlier this month.

SPOTLIGHT TIP:Sunray Major

Well-bred colt who won here last time and looks a potential Group performer; respected
