Fillies' & Mares' Stakes - 18th October, 2014

Luca Cumani's Silk Sari continued her progression with an impressive victory in the Park Hill Stakes at Doncaster and will now look to bag Group 1 glory on Saturday in a wide open renewal of the British Champions Day Fillies' & Mares' Stakes at Ascot.

Aidan O'Brien's Chicquita was completely outclassed in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, but showed when landing the Irish Oaks earlier in the season that she is a class act on her day and she could make the trip over to Ballydoyle for what is a wide open betting heat.

Roger Varian's Hadaatha was another seen at Longchamp's Arc meeting and was a decent third in the Prix de l'Opera and she will aim to build on that effort, whilst last year's shock winner Seal Of Approval could look to retain this notable1m 4f crown and can't be discounted.

Saeed Bin Suroor's Albasharah was a Listed winner last weekend and could make a quick return to the track and has to be considered as a leading player, whilst Cubanita can land a significant blow if recapturing the form that saw her win the John Porter Stakes earlier in the season.

Of the others, Tasaday will be another shot fired by the Godolphin gun and is of interest, whilst Madame Chiang is another set to take her place in the field in what is one of the toughest races to decipher on British Champions Day at the weekend.

Fillies' & Mares' Stakes History

The British Champions Fillies' & Mares' Stakes is a Group One race run at Ascot on British Champions Day over one mile, four furlongs for fillies and mares aged three years or older.

Established in 1946, the Fillies' & Mares' Stakes has changed names several times since its inception and having most recently been the Pride Stakes, has now changed to its current name since the start of the Qipco Champions Series.

Now part of the Qipco British Champions Day, the Fillies & Mares Stakes has grown considerably in stature with a pot of �250,000 on offer.� Previously run at Newmarket, it has now joined the Ascot multi-million pound extravaganza and with the huge injection of money is bound to attract a star-studded field.

Over the years some of the greats have managed to bag success in the event with Shebeen bagging back-to-back successes in 1974 and 1975.� More recently names such as Epsom Oaks winner Snow Bride won in 1989 for Sir Henry Cecil and the great Ouija Board etched her name on the illustrious roll of honour in 2005.

Like so many of the top races Lester Piggott sits yet again on top of the pile in the jockey standings with a total of eight winners coming between 1959 and 1984.�

However, one man surpasses Piggott in amount of winners and that is trainer John Duniop, who has saddled a staggering nine winners of the race with his first coming in 1966 and his last in 2006 with Acts of Grace.
