Andrew Balding will send Beat The Bank straight to Qipco Champions Day at Ascot on October 20 for a second tilt at the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes.

The four-year-old, who has tasted Group Two glory this year in both the Summer Mile at the Berkshire track and last time out in the Celebration Mile at Goodwood, will bid to make it fifth time lucky at the top table in the mile prize, in which he finished 10th last year.

Balding said: “He had a dirty scope, so that is why we decided not to run him in the Joel Stakes (at Newmarket), otherwise he would have been an intended runner.

“Everything else has been OK and the plan now is to go straight to the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes on Champions Day.”
