A star-studded cast of 28 remain in the feature event of British Champions Day, the £1.3 million QIPCO Champion Stakes.

The entries are headed by Almanzor, brilliant winner of the Irish equivalent this month, having previously won the French Derby and for whom the Ascot race is the preferred destination.
