A tough going sort who took his winning run to 5 when landing the Arkle which was his second win at Grade 1 level.
He was then beaten by Gentleman De Mee at Aintree the following month, but I think that race came just a bit too soon after the Festival.
Alan King’s stable star returned better than ever when winning the Tingle Creek at Sandown beating Greaneteen by 9 lengths.
Edwardstone does not really get spoken about enough compared to other top horses, but he is a superstar and looks set to continue his great form here with another victory.
A repeat of last time out will make him the one they all have to beat. The worthy favourite by some distance.
