FRIDAY 3.05 KING EDWARD VII STAKES
1. Constantinople 2. Jalmoud 3. Il Paradiso Constantinople has been tenderly handled by Aidan O’brien who described him as a “big baby” after his recent win in the Group 3 Gallinule Stakes at the Curragh. He needed every inch of the 1m2f that day and as a brother to Leger runner-up Bondi Beach he will relish the step up in trip. Jalmoud has shaped like he’s up to this standard. He’s beautifully bred, out of Oaks winner Dancing Rain, and showed a good turn of foot to win his two races this year.
