Joined at the top of the betting we find Art Power and Dragon Symbol. Art Power ended his losing run with a superb five-length triumph at the Curragh last time out and boasts winning form at Ascot. Dragon Symbol will be making the eleventh appearance of the season, as he seeks to make the breakthrough at Group One level.
Like Art Power, Rohaan has winning form on this sprint track and will make his fourth-straight Group One appearance. Creative Force won the Jersey Stakes at Ascot earlier in the season. Kinross has also won a big prize over seven furlongs this term, and both will drop back in distance for the Champions Sprint.
Minzaal shaped well on his reappearance at Ascot two weeks ago and Jim Crowley has been confirmed in the saddle. David Egan rides Vadream for Charlie Fellowes, with Hollie Doyle reprising her partnership with last year's surprise winner, Glen Shiel, who's been beaten on all six of his starts since winning this Group One.
Nine-year-old Brando could make his sixth appearance in the Champions Sprint. Twilight Spinner and Gustavus Weston could make the trip over from Ireland. Happy Romance, Happy Power, Last Empire and Dandalla also feature in the Champions Day betting.
