Ascot British champions day is a big day in British horse racing and one that closes the flat racing season. It’s also the richest day in UK racing, so, as you can imagine, the quality on show is amazing and the betting opportunities great in this awesome day of British racing.
This is a simple bet on the horse that will win any of the six races being held on British Champions Day. This bet can be placed to win or each way. It goes without saying but it is always worth looking into form rather going with a hunch. Of course, you can bet on all six races in six unrelated bets or…
…or you can put all six horses into one bet for a multi. This could be a six-fold acca for which you might get price boosts at certain bookies or you could try a systems bet such as a Heinz which is 57 bets with no singles or a Lucky 63 which is the same bet but with added singles for full cover. Either way, six selections is all you need.
There are six races on British Champions Day making it perfect for a placepot bet. For those that don’t know, a placepot bet is a wager which includes six selections, one for each race on that day’s card. With a placepot, bettors such as yourself are required to pick six horses and each one must place in its respected race in order for the bet to progress. If all six horses qualify, then by the end of the day’s racing, your bet will be a winner and a Tote payout calculated to pay to the £1 will be rewarded relevant to your stake.
Forecast betting works on one race only and is designed for those bettors that believe they know which two horses will finish first and second in a race. With a straight forecast, as opposed to a reverse forecast, you must nominate the horses to finish in the correct order whereas with a reverse forecast, for double the stake, the same two horses can come home in either order.
History of Ascot Champions Day
British Champions Day was created in 2011 when the authorities combined and restructured two of the biggest end of season fixtures in Britain, the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes and the Champion Stakes, that until 2010 had been staged at Ascot and Newmarket respectively. By pooling the events, a major cash injection was harvested to eventually create the richest day in UK horse racing.
This became the starting point of Champions Day, after which three other championship finals were added. Newmarket’s Jockey Club Cup and Pride Stakes relocated to Berkshire where they joined Ascot’s Diadem Stakes to become the British Champions Long Distance Cup and the British Champions Fillies’ and Mares’ Stakes in a new look end to the British flat season.
