Highly-rated Ballydoyle three-year-old Japan has shot up the market for Its Group 1 Juddmonte International at next week’s Ebor Festival.
Priced at 16/1 in areas only a matter of days before, that the Group 1 winner is as brief as 4/1 after having a flow of bets.
At the last 24 hours, Japan is currently the very endorsed in the market having accrued 48 percent of stakes. 38 percent of punters at exactly the identical time frame have sided with favourite Crystal Ocean.
Trainer Aidan O’Brien revealed earlier this week that the King Edward VII Stakes winner may be entered into the race at York next week having been in great form of late.
The Derby third won over in France last time out, following his Royal Ascot victory with a remarkable win at Longchamp.
Entry into the Juddmonte International would see Japan faced with all the mighty Crystal Ocean, now the favorite for that race in 11/8.
John Gosden’s King Of Comedy separates the set in the current market.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson:”It looked as though the St Leger has been Aidan O’Brien’s probably route for Japan, however, his latest form has seemingly lured the Ballydoyle trainer into having a shot at Crystal Ocean.
“O’Brien’s record in this race talks for itself, and punters were quick to get on board with all an in-form three-year-old at the prices available earlier this week”
