Mabs Cross is intended to undertake six furlongs for the first time in well over a couple of years from the Qipco British Champions Sprint on Saturday.

The five-year-old has won seven of her 19 career starts – a tally that includes a Group One success at the 2018 Prix de lAbbaye, a race in which she finished fifth on her appearance.
Mabs Cross will lineup with trainer Michael Dods admitting that the prospect of extremely testing requirements is a concern since she ends up in trip, for what might be her swansong on British Champions Day.
