2017 Coral-Eclipse Stakes Betting Trends and Tips

Sandown horse racing tips

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 15 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 8 Epsom Derby winners from that season go onto land the Coral-Eclipse, while favourites have a decent record – winning 7 of the last 15 and being placed in 12 of the last 15.

We take a look back at recent winners, and highlight the key stats to be looking out for ahead of the 2017 renewal – this year run on Saturday 8th July.
