Frankie Dettori is a name that everyone knows and he’s due to finish riding in Britain at the end of this season, as the veteran jockey is set to move to the US. This means his five rides at Ascot on Saturday could be his last ever rides at the track. Famous for going through the entire card at Ascot back in 1996, it would be fitting if he was to complete a five-timer on Champions Day. Every race from Ascot will be live on ITV.

Trawlerman (15-2, bet365) has been completely unchallenged in his last two starts and this includes an 18-length defeat of two rivals in a Listed race at Newmarket last time out. He was third behind Trueshan in this race last year but recent evidence suggests he’s an improved horse. Frankie Dettori has made a last minute switch to this horse and that could be significant.
Kinross (6-4, bet365) was an easy winner of this race last year and the market is expecting him to defend his crown easily. It’s hard to go against that logic as he tends to save his best for the latter stages of the season and this is a rather weak renewal.
Free Wind (10-3, bet365) is a better horse than she was able to show in the Arc at Longchamp last time out. She was only narrowly denied in the Group 1 Yorkshire Oaks on her penultimate start and a repeat of that effort would be enough here.
Chaldean (11-1, bet365) won the 2000 Guineas back in May and could be a bit of a forgotten horse here. Having said that, he was put firmly in his place by Paddington in the St. James’s Palace Stakes here in June and has a bit to find. He should be nice and fresh and has an outside chance if back to his best.
King Of Steel (4-1, bet365) is a very talented individual who comfortably dispatched the subsequent St. Leger winner here in June. Only beaten by a length in a very hot Irish Champion Stakes last time out, he’s got every chance of winning a first Group 1.
