This year's competition came to an end at the star-studded QIPCO British Champions Day at Ascot last Saturday. With it being so close at the top of the leader board, and additional bonus points on offer throughout the day it looked set to go down to the wire. The following winners scored points for players:

The Long Distance Cup started proceedings and it looked set to be a rematch between Trueshan and Stradivarius, with the former starting as favourite after his recent Prix du Cadran win. It was a messy affair, with much of the post-race talk focusing on the rides given to the placed horses rather than the winner. Nevertheless it was joy for team Trueshan and the 20 TTF teams that all scored 50 points.

The Sprint Stakes looked at first glance to be one of the more open races on the card with Art Power, Rohaan, Creative Force and Kinross all towards the head of the market. Former winner Glen Shiel put in a bold front running performance, but couldn't hold off the fast finishing Creative Force who kept on well to take the prize. This result scored 55 points for one TTF team. 

To quote Derek Thompson, "that's one for the judge". However, not even the judge can split the players at the top of our leader board and we have a three-way tie for first place! Congratulations to Mervyn Broom, Ray Horne and Grenville Davies who will split the prize pot and take home £175 each.
