Benoit de la Sayette will be crowned apprentice champion at Ascot on Saturday after taking the lead from his closest rival, Harry Davies, to reverse the deficit on Thursday.

Davies closed the gap to four with his first race at Brighton, teaming up with Blackbird Power to beat King Power Racing and boss Andrew Balding. However, Davies failed in his next three races, making sure he didn't have time to catch Up with De la Sayette before the championship race ended at the end of Saturday's British Champions Day.

De la Sayette, who returned to action in March after a drug ban, is following in the footsteps of several Group 1 winners Jason Hart, Oisin Murphy, Tom Marquand, David Egan and Cieren Fallon to become a champion in formation of the last decade.

Thady Gosden said: "He's had a great season and he's an exceptionally talented driver. He has worked well and done well this year. He deserves all the success he's had."

British Champion's Day will be in action at the Balmoral Handicap in Magical Morning for the Gosdens.

Davies will also be in action at Perotto's Balmoral ahead of a season abroad. Shea said: "Tomorrow he will not compete and will stop chasing the Balmoral Handicap at Ascot on Saturday to save his £3 claim. He will then go to Bahrain for a month and then to Dubai, where he will spend six weeks with Charlie Appleby.

"Harry is only 17 years old and still has 29 winners, so we can do it again next year, but we have to sit down with Andrew Balding in the new year."
