Highly-rated Ballydoyle three-year-old Japan has shot up the market for the Group 1 Juddmonte International at the next week’s Ebor Festival.
Priced at 16/1 in places just a matter of days before, that the Group 1 winner is as short as 4/1 after a stream of stakes.
At the previous 24 hours, Japan is currently the very backed from the market having accrued 48% of stakes. Favourite Crystal Ocean has been sided with by 38 percent of punters at exactly precisely the identical time frame.
Trainer Aidan O’Brien revealed earlier this week that the King Edward VII Stakes winner might be entered into the race in York next week having been in great form of late.
The Derby third acquired over in France out his time, following his Royal Ascot victory with an impressive win at Longchamp.
Entry to the Juddmonte International would see Japan confronted with all the mighty Crystal Ocean, currently the favorite for this race in 11/8.
John Gosden’s King Of Comedy divides the set on the marketplace.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson:”It looked as though the St Leger has been Aidan O’Brien’s probably course for Japan, but his latest form seems to have tempted the Ballydoyle coach into using a shot at Crystal Ocean.
“O’Brien’s record in this race talks for itself, also punters were fast to catch on board with an in-form three-year-old at the costs available earlier this week”
