Saturday's card at Ascot feature two excellent Group Three races. The first of those, the Cumberland Lodge Stakes, was won in dominant fashion by Hukum, who surged clear down the home straight to win by six-and-a-half lengths.

Owen Burrows said the Breeders' Cup Turf was off the table for Hukum, but could target the Hong Kong Cup or the Sheema Classic early next year.

After a series of near-misses, Charlie Fellowes watched Vadream claim a deserved victory in the Bengough Stakes, holding off King's Lynn and Ventura Diamond to earn black-type.

With Thanks extended her excellent record on soft ground with a narrow victory in the October Stakes. Tis Marvellous continued his love affair with Ascot by beating Minzaal in the Listed Rous Stakes.

Following that excellent effort behind Tis Marvellous on his return from injury, Minzaal was slashed in from 20s to 8/1 to win the Champions Day Sprint by Paddy Power.

The big handicap on Ascot's card was won by the well-backed Aldaary, who strode clear of Symbolise to land the "The Fall" Challenge Cup. Boundless Power then rounded off an excellent day of racing by scoring in the McGee Group Handicap.
