Highly-rated Ballydoyle three-year-old Japan has Taken up the Marketplace 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 now as brief as 4/1 after having a flow of bets.
In the previous 24 hours, Japan is the most endorsed in the market having accrued 48% of bets. Favorite Crystal Ocean has been sided with by 38 percent of punters at the identical time period.
Trainer Aidan O’Brien shown earlier this week that the King Edward VII Stakes winner could be input into the race at York next week having been in great form of late night.
The Derby third acquired over in France last time out, following up his Royal Ascot victory with an impressive win in Longchamp.
Entry to the Juddmonte International would visit Japan faced with the powerful Crystal Ocean, currently the favorite for this race in 11/8.
John Gosden’s King Of Comedy divides the pair on the current market, priced in 3/1.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson:”It seemed as though the St Leger was Aidan O’Brien’s probably course for Japan, however, his latest form seems to have tempted the Ballydoyle trainer into using a shot at Crystal Ocean.
“O’Brien’s record in this race speaks for itself, also punters were quick to catch on board with the in-form three-year-old in the prices available earlier this week.”
