History of the King Edward VII Stakes race at Royal Ascot

First run in 1834. Originally known as the Ascot Derby. Renamed in memory of King Edward VII in 1926. The King Edward VII Stakes often attracts horses which had been entered for the Epsom Derby two weeks earlier.

The most successful jockey in the race’s history was Morney Cannon with seven wins between 1891 and 1904.

From the same era the most successful trainer was John Porter with nine wins between 1867 and 1904, five of them were ridden by Morney Cannon.

Take a look at Nathaniel winning the 2012 King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot under William Buick

What's Keith's King Edward VII Stakes Tips for Royal Ascot?

Keith Bond is our resident pro tipster here at FRT Towers.  He's been studying the cards, form, stats, trends and more for the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot, and here's his thoughts ahead of the race:

Only six runners are due to line up for this and on paper, just four of them have a realistic chance, MOGUL and ARTHUR'S KINGDOM are trained by Aiden O'Brien and splitting them in the betting tissue is MOHICAN heights, PAPA POWER completes the quartet.

 

Keith's final choice

15:00 PAPA POWER 10/1 – While the betting suggests MOGUL this race is much more wide open than that. PAPA POWER enjoyed two easy AW wins in February and is bred to be even better on turf.

How it fared

PAPA POWER Went backwards in the closing stages last of the 6 home.

This is what Keith said about the 2019 King Edward VII Stakes:

Leading Contenders
SIR DRAGONET 4/1 – Chester Vase winner by eight lengths held up in last before making his move two furlongs from home, hit the front at the furlong pole and drew clear.
TELECASTER 9/2 – Dante winner at York lowering the colours of TOO DARN HOT.
ANTHONY VAN DYKE 6/1 – Was well in command when winning the Lingfield Derby Trial.
BROOME 6/1 – Driven clear to win the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial at Leopardstown. Should be involved and has an each way chance.

Antepost selection: You have an advantage over me as at the time of writing the Epsom Derby and the Irish Derby have not been run and those races will have a significant bearing as to who lines up here. With my limited information the tentative selection for the race is SIR DRAGONET 4/1 who won at Chester pretty impressively.

On the day, Keith tipped PABLO ESCOBARR as a 10/1 each way option for the King Edward VII Stakes.

Royal Ascot King Edward VII Stakes Results

1 Pyledriver 18/1
2 Arthurs Kingdom 9/2
3 Mohican Heights 4/1
6 ran Distances: 2l, 2l, ¾l
Time: 2m 32.21s (slow by 3.71s)

1 Japan 6/4F
2 Bangkok 10/1
3 Eagles By Day 25/1
8 ran Distances: 4½l, nk, 2½l

Our Verdict:

The favourite, Japan stole the show with a phenomenally strong finish which should please our member who overwhelmingly supported it. The real competition was for the place honours where Bangkok just beat Eagles By Day by a neck to secure 2nd place.

Keith’s pick, PABLO ESCOBAR didn’t have a great race, and finished 5th out of the 8 who ran.
