Run over 1m2f at Sandown Park racecourse in early July the Coral-Eclipse Stakes is open to horses aged 3 or older and with 13 of the last 17 winners having already landed a Group One contest in their careers then it often attracts some of the best horses from around the world.
In recent years, we’ve seen 2 of the last 10 Epsom Derby winners from that season go onto land the Coral-Eclipse, while favourites have a decent record – winning 8 of the last 17 and being placed in 13 of the last 17.

JUICESTORM VERDICT: Another high-class renewal of this Group One – plenty to look forward to. CD winner Regal Reality will be looking to give trainer Sir Michael Stoute his seventh win in the race and he can’t be ruled out after winning the Brigadier Gerard Stakes here back in May. This will be tougher, but he did it well that day. But he’s also got to give 3lbs away to the superstar mare – ENABLE – and that makes life even tougher. The Gosden runner has won her last nine races, including the Arc and Breeders’ Cup turf, and has shown that running off a break is fine in the past too. The drop back to 1m2f might be the thing those looking to take her on will cling to, as her only try over this trip saw her beaten! However, the stiff Sandown finish will help on that score and we can expect Frankie to be fully aware of that and make full use of her proven stamina. Telecaster didn’t get home in the Derby and also ran too free so the drop back to 1m2f will make the Dante Stakes winner interesting. But the main danger to Enable looks to be from Magical. This O’Brien runner never runs a bad race and was a gallant second in the Prince Of Wales’ Stakes last time out – she’s sure to go well and is only rated 2lbs off of Enable, so really there shouldn’t be a lot between them – just like in the Breeders’ Cup last November, when only ¾ of a length separated them. Of the bigger-priced runners though – the other Stoute runner – MUSTASHRY (e/w) – might be worth a small e/w interest. He won the Lockinge in good style back in May but didn’t quite have the pace in the Queen Anne Stakes last time out. He was running on well that day though, so the step up to 1m2f looks a plus and he’s also a proven CD winner here at Sandown. He’s rated 121, which is the third-highest in the race, but will be looking to become the first 6 year-old to win the race since 1886!!
