King Edward VII Stakes Betting Odds

Last year’s winner Changingoftheguard was typical of most winners in not having been highly tried at two before improving at three to contest a Derby trial (and the big race itself).

Even though there is only a short time between Epsom and Royal Ascot, many King Edward VII winners have graduated from the Derby, including four of the last six.

King Of Steel Silk 5
  • Age:3
  • Weight:9-2
  • Form:17-2
  • OR:120
Only six go to post for the King Edward VII stakes which looks likely to go to the Roger Varian trained King Of Steel who ran a remarkable race in the Derby when beating all bar the winner Auguste Rodin. Officially 7lb better than these and holding the second favourite Arrest, Artistic Star and Dubai Mile on Epsom form and is a confident selection.

King Edward VII Stakes History & Past Winners

Sir Michael Stoute has won the race seven times whilst Mark Johnston (license now held by son Charlie) and John Gosden (license now jointly held by John and his son Thady) have had three winners apiece whilst Aidan O’Brien has also had three winners with two of those and five runners up in the last decade.

The key stat is that all of the last ten winners won within their last three starts whilst 8 out of 10 had yet to win over 1M 4F. 9 out of 10 had run in a recognised Derby trial (four had won).
