Magical – 15:40 Ascot
Flags: Horse For Course, Hot Trainer, Top-Rated
Magical has never finished outside the top two when racing at Ascot, winning twice, including last year’s renewal of this race, and she arguably arrives at this year’s Champions Day in better form than ever. After winning two Group 1s at the Curragh to kick off her season, Magical came up short against Ghaiyyath in the Juddmonte International, but she turned the tables on that rival in the Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown last time, becoming just the second horse to win the race twice. She is a remarkable mare who already has seven Group 1 wins to her name, and with Aidan O’Brien’s yard enjoying such a good end to the season, there is a very good chance she can land her eighth.
