Gosden excited by King Of Comedy’s Plans
Trainer John Gosden says King Of Comedy has the chance to enjoy a busy schedule this season as he prepares to run his stable star at York and Ascot.
The three-year-old was last in action at Royal Ascot, where he came second to Circus Maximus in the St James’s Palace Stakes.
Gosden’s charge has never finished outside the top two since making his debut in July 2018 and has enjoyed two wins at Sandown and one at Yarmouth.
After winning two of three this season, the Newmarket handler is eager to test his colt and believes he can compete in the Juddmonte International Stakes at the Ebor Festival before running in the Qipco Champion Stakes in October (King Of Comedy 7/2 Juddmonte Stakes).
Gosden said: “I said after the St James’s Palace Stakes that the Champion Stakes would be an obvious target. I think it will be right up his alley.
“We’ve freshened him up and given him a break since Ascot. He was on the go fairly early in the spring. I think in the end his best trip is going to be a mile and a quarter and he likes Ascot. He’ll be suited by the trip and the track.
“He’s going to run in the Juddmonte International and he wouldn’t necessarily go straight to Ascot as he’s been entered in the Qipco Irish Champion Stakes as well. He’s going the right way and we’ve always thought enough of him.”
Crystal Ocean currently heads the betting at odds of 6/4 and is also expected to head to Ascot.
Magical is also well fancied at odds of 4/1, while Circus Maximus is 8/1 to win and beat King Of Comedy for the second time in quick succession.
