Eagle Top was a hugely impressive winner of the King Edward VII Stakes to give John Gosden a third success of the week at Royal Ascot.

Aidan O'Brien's Adelaide was backed almost to the exclusion of everything else in the race and was sent off the 6-5 favourite.

Joseph O'Brien made a move on the bend on the market leader and everything looked to be going smoothly, but William Buick had tracked him through and had yet to ask for an effort.

The son of Pivotal won a Newbury maiden on his racecourse debut yet was beaten in a Leicester handicap last time out when he apparently had excuses.

Related to Oaks winner Sariska, he moved up so effortlessly Group One targets are surely in the offing as the 12-1 chance pulled clear of Adelaide with Scotland running on into third.

Buick said: "We've had so much belief in this horse and there were reasons why he ran poorly at Leicester last time.

"He came here, he didn't turn a hair and was very relaxed. He's got all the attributes of a top, top racehorse.

"They went a gallop, as you would expect in a race like this, but he made up a lot of ground in a short space of time. I couldn't believe how easy I got there, really.

"This horse - you'll be hearing a lot more from him."
