British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes Tips

The British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes can safely be narrowed down to the four at the head of the betting, which one though your guess is as good as mine at this stage, my final choice will be revealed on Saturday.


How Did We Do?

Keith's message to VIP Members on raceday was:

DAME MALLIOT 9/2 – Group 2 winner at Newmarket on soft when held up, subsequently third in two group 1's when forced to take an early lead. Can bounce back if a waiting game is employed again.

DAME MALLIOT failed to land the treble for Hollie Doyle but she put up a good effort battling well to take second behind another of the shortlisted horses WONDERFUL TONIGHT.

Keith will have a tip for all races shown on ITV which he will send to all VIP members on the morning of the races.  If you are not yet a VIP member, please join VIP for free.
