2022 King Edward VII Stakes Betting Odds at Ascot racecourse

Friday, 17 June 2022

Leading trainer John Gosden has won this race a number of times at Royal Ascot and perhaps Reach For The Moon will follow in the footsteps of Plea Bargain (2005), Nathaniel (2011) and Eagle Top (2014) for a handler who will hope his charge gets the trip.

The King Edward betting odds has the horse heading the market, although Charlie Appleby could be mob-handed for this encounter and that includes Nations Pride, New London and Walk Of Stars who are all capable of travelling and running well in this encounter.

2022 King Edward VII Stakes Tips

Reach For The Moon is a horse owned by Her Majesty and there were some promising signs when it came to performances as a two-year-old. The horse ran at the 2021 Royal Ascot meeting where he achieved a second-placed finish behind odds-on favourite Point Lonsdale in the Chesham Stakes, with that being on soft ground over seven furlongs.

There was then a comfortable win over the same trip at Newbury and that was followed by a triumph in the Betway Solario Stakes at Sandown Park, although the big question is whether all this strong form means that the horse will be able to get a longer trip over the required one mile and four furlongs.

Nations Pride is next in the current Royal Ascot betting, with Charlie Appleby probably rating this Godolphin horse as his best chance of a winner in this race. There have been four straight wins and interestingly, the horse obliged at 7/4 over one mile and two furlongs when beating some decent runners including Hoo Ya Mal and Subastar.

There was also a relatively big money win when Nations Pride claimed victory in the Jumeirah Derby over the same trip, with stablemates New London and Walk Of Stars also looking as though they could line up and challenge for major honours.

The former had a double win at Newmarket before failing to oblige as strong favourite in the Chester Vase, with Walk Of Stars boasting similar form and there was recently a second-placed finish in a Derby Trial Stakes.
