QIPCO British Champions Day 2018 weather forecast

Frankel at British Champion Series

Sat 20 Oct 2018

The richest raceday in Britain, the QIPCO British Champions Day on 20 October will see £4 million of prize money up for grabs for the finale of the European Flat Race season.

Considered a highlight of the Autumn sports calendar, it is often considered the best raceday in the world with the best horses lining up to race.

Spectators and enthusiasts will be looking for the perfect course conditions to suit their chosen horse and rider and to make for an exciting day of racing at the Ascot racecourse.

On race day, the course officials will check the course conditions and inform the owners and jockeys. This information also helps those who have an interest in the race.

Owners will be looking for the course to be classed as 'good' which means the ground will be neither too hard or too soggy.

So whether you are a spectator, owner, or course official, check the weather forecast below in anticipation of the QIPCO British Champions Day.
