Ten year trends for Friday at Royal Ascot

Ian Ogg analyses the last 10 renewals of the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot and picks out the key statistics.

Victory for Sir Michael Stoute would take his tally of King Edward VII Stakes winners to eight, one behind race record holder John Porter.

Two of the Newmarket handler's winners have come in the last four years and Crystal Ocean has leading claims after his taking third to the re-opposing Permian in the Dante Stakes on just his third career start.

This has not been a happy hunting ground for Aidan O'Brien (his one winner came in 2004) whose Sir John Lavery skipped the Derby after struggling at Lingfield; he should be able to step up significantly on that form and prove his running to be all wrong.

Call To Mind's profile is not dissimilar to 2015 winner Balios and Father Time stepped up from being beaten in the Fairway Stakes to win this prize in 2009. William Haggas' colt still looked inexperienced at Newmarket and is another who could take a large stride forwards.

John Gosden has won two of the last six renewals and also saddled runners to be third, second and third in three of the other four years which automatically accords his runners respect but they all appear to have something to find with Crystal Ocean who is taken to justify favouritism.

* Winners have been priced between 11/4 and 12/1 with one favourite successful.

* Winners have had between two and seven career starts.

* Nine of the winners had had either two or three starts during the current season.

* Seven winners had won a race during the current season.

* Eight winners finished in the first three on their preceding start.

* One of the exceptions finished tenth in the Derby, the other was a 1 3/4l fourth in a handicap.

* No winner made their first racecourse appearance prior to August of their juvenile season.

* Winners have been rated between 92 and 109.
