Queen Elizabeth II Stakes - 18th October, 2014

Charm Spirit was last seen edging out the Richard Hannon-trained duo of Night Of Thunder and Toronado in the Prix Moulin and even though he will not have to get the better of the latter in Saturday's Queen Elizabeth II Stakes he will lock horns with the former in a cracking encounter at Ascot.

The French raider was a head in front of Toronado and he was duly a neck ahead of Night Of Thunder, so it's sure to be a cracking contest again, with the bookmakers struggling to split them in one of the most exciting races on British Champions Day.

Night Of Thunder was a fine winner of the 2000 Guineas earlier in the season, when beating the incomparable Kingman and if he can reproduce that sort of effort then has to stand a great chance of reversing the French form and hand Hannon another notable success.

Integral was a fine winner of the Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmaket last time out and Sir Michael Stoute's filly will receive weight from her male adversaries and is a lively player, whilst David O'Meara's Custom Cut is in sensational form having landed his fifth win on the spin last time out in the Joel Stakes and is worthy of his place.

Brian Ellison's Top Notch Tonto will relish the soft conditions that are likely to be on offer at Ascot and could be an each-way prospect for many punters, whilst the likes of Tullius, Captain Cat and Toormore are just another classy trio set to do battle in this 1m contest.

Queen Elizabeth II Stakes History

The Queen Elizabeth II Stakes is a Group One race run at Ascot on British Champions Day over one mile for horses aged three years or older.

Established in 1955, the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes now makes up part of Ascot's British Champions Day which sees some of the top thoroughbreds in action throughout a top day's racing.

Since its inception the QEII has had some superstars of the turf bag glory in the eight furlong contest with the incomparable Brigadier Gerard winning back-to-back contests in 1971 and 1972.  The race has continued its meteoric rise over the last 20 years with such winners as Dubai Millennium in 1999, George Washington in 2006 and RIp Van Winkle in 2009.

Godolphin, in particular, have an excellent record in the race as they have owned five winners of the race all trained by master handler Saeed Bin Suroor, who is the most successful trainer in the race's history.

Now with £1 million in prize money being shared out the QEII has become one of the most valuable races in the calendar and that lofty prize will certainly continue to attract the stars of flat racing to Ascot at the end of the season.
