Pyledriver upsets the odds to win the King Edward VII Stakes at Ascot

Pyledriver sprang an 18-1 surprise for trainer William Muir and jockey Martin Dwyer in the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Having had the benefit of a seasonal reappearance at Kempton two weeks ago, the Harbour Watch colt leapt into the Derby picture with a solid performance.

Sound Of Cannons took the field along and was five lengths clear at one stage with the second Arthur's Kingdom several lengths ahead of the rest of the field.

Dwyer made his move at the top of the straight and was soon in front. He kept up the gallop to win by two lengths from Arthur's Kingdom, trained by Aidan O'Brien and ridden by Frankie Dettori.

Mohican Heights was two lengths away in third place, with O'Brien's 10-11 favourite Mogul only fourth.
