3.05 KING EDWARD VII STAKES
FINISHING in the first three last time has been an important factor for this Group 2 and it’s not good news for Bangkok, Humanitarian and Eagles By Day
Jack Yeats must surely be making the pace for Japan and, at 33-1, he’s far too long in the betting to be winning this.
Hot favourite Japan has a major question mark thanks to the fact that he doesn’t have a win beyond a mile. You really need to have proven yourself over further.
Pablo Escobarr comes up short because he has just one previous win to his name, which isn’t enough.
That leaves us with a battle between PRIVATE SECRETARY and Pondus with the former getting the nod. That’s largely because trainer John Gosden knows what it takes to win this race.
