Harry Angel set for the Sprint

Harry Angel bids for another sprint prize

Harry Angel leads a classy field of 13 for the Qipco British Champions Sprint Stakes at Ascot on Saturday.

Clive Cox's speedball has already beaten his elders twice this season, in the July Cup at Newmarket and the Sprint Cup at Haydock.

His opponents will be clinging to the fact that the only three defeats in his career have all been at Ascot.

Last year's winner The Tin Man, Harry Angel's Commonwealth Cup conqueror Caravaggio and Karl Burke's filly Quiet Reflection will all have their supporters.
