King Edward VII Stakes Guide

1. Bangkok

T - Andrew Balding

J - Silvestre De Sousa

Primed to be one of the best Balding has ever trained, Bangkok was essentially a no-show in the Epsom Derby last time out.

Wins at Doncaster and at Sandown in the Classic trial projected him into the fold for a shot in the Derby, but unfortunately it was not to be.

Hopefully he can bounce back to his real best here.

2. Eagles By Day

T - Michael Bell

J - Daniel Tudhope

First day double-winning rider Danny Tudhope jumps on Eagles By Day, who finished sixth to Anthony Van Dyck in the Derby Trial at Lingfield on most recent start.

Strong looking form given the outcome of the real thing, and won a nice maiden at Salisbury in very impressive style beforehand.

Decent each way possibilities.

3. Humanitarian

T - John Gosden

J - Robert Havlin

Smart triumph at Salisbury making all, and was sent off a big price for the Epsom Derby, when kept in by John Gosden.

Finished seventh and not disgraced by any means in that contest, and could be in the frame in a race of less magnitude.

Definitely of interest, and an easy track for him to handle.

4. Jack Yeats

T - Aidan O'Brien

J - Donnacha O'Brien

Real unknown individual at Ballydoyle, having won his maiden last time out at the end of April.

That probably reflects his price at 33/1, and this sort of event may come too soon for him.

Never a trainer to write off, and perhaps he has been best prepared at home.

One to keep an eye on.

5. Japan

T - Aidan O'Brien

J - Ryan Moore

Ballydoyle's first choice, Japan ran onto finish third in a blanket finish to the Epsom Derby at the beginning of the month.

He finished fourth in the Dante - two good performances, and there is plenty of evidence to prove there is a win for him down the line.

Fine performer, and it could certainly come here.

6. Pablo Escobarr

T - William Haggas

J - James Doyle

Second to Anthony Van Dyck at Lingfield in a Derby trial sets the three-year-old up perfectly for this.

Short-head second before that in a Handicap at Bath and looked like the winner from a long way out, so has continued the transition from his juvenile days to his three-year-old campaign.

Every possibility there is more to come.

7. Pondus

T - James Fanshawe

J - Oisin Murphy

Leading player, with two victories after his debut fourth at Nottingham back in April.

Returned to the same venue to bolt up under Daniel Muscutt over a month ago, before taking a decent Novice contest at Sandown at the end of May with this jock on board in sensational style.

Should be at the forefront here despite rise in grade.

8. Private Secretary

T - John Gosden

J - Frankie Dettori

Skipped the Derby, but may not look a bad decision if winning this, which he has a cracking chance of doing so.

Another individual who has won at Sandown this season, when he took a handicap back in April, before taking career to new levels with success in Listed race at Goodwood.

Certainly a group performer, and has a big part to play.
