Trainer Aidan O’Brien revealed earlier this week the King Edward VII Stakes winner may be input into the race in York next week with been in great form of late.

John Gosden’s King Of Comedy divides the pair in the marketplace, priced at 3/1.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson:”It looked like the St Leger has been Aidan O’Brien’s likely route for Japan, however, his sparkling recent variant has seemingly lured the Ballydoyle trainer into using a shot at Crystal Ocean.
“O’Brien’s record in this race talks for itself, also punters were quick to catch on board with all an in-form three-year-old at the costs available earlier this week”
