Runners & Riders – The Coral-Eclipse 2020

‘The Steeple Times’ takes a look at the seven horse Group 1 Coral-Eclipse 2020 at Sandown and opts for a tasty outsider for an each way bet

As was remarked on Twitter last night by our editor Matthew Steeples: “Serpentine’s owner’s son says he ‘just ran for fun’ in The Derby. The rest of the horses didn’t run for toffee.”

Other than the winner, it was a hugely disappointing spectacle, but in the equally shaken up The Oaks thanks to a late tip, we did manage and each way second place with Ennistymon at 6/1.

 

Today, it is an even harder call Coral-Eclipse 2020 at Sandown at 3.35pm with just 7 very impressive runners (out of a potential maximum of 17) in this 1 mile, 1 furlong and 209 yard race. Given that the battle for first is impossible to call at this stage – it is most definitely Enable (the 2019 winner) vs. Ghaiyyath according to the majority of tipsters with less of a threat from Japan – we are looking at a second for:

EACH WAY 3.35pm – Sandown Park – Oisin Murphy ridden, Mitsuru Hashida trained Deirdre at 22/1.

Templegate for The Sun says: “Deirdre won the Nassau Stakes at Glorious Goodwood last season so is proven at this level. She hasn’t run for four months so is entitled to need this and will come on for the outing.”

 

Racing Post adds: “Won last year’s Nassau; needs a career best to land this prize.”

 

At The Races concludes: “Japanese mare Deirdre cannot be discounted.”

 

We hope you had a most enjoyable ‘Super Saturday’ yesterday and today we again wish you a happy day’s racing in the Coral-Eclipse 2020.

The Coral-Eclipse was first run in 1886 and it was originally funded by Leopold de Rothschild. Lester Piggott, to date, has been its leading jockey, winning seven times between 1951 and 1977. In 1987, Piggott was stripped of his OBE and jailed for three years for tax fraud and later moved to Switzerland with his partner Lady Barbara FitzGerald.

Punters will be hoping it won’t be a case for a need to “Free The Weatherfield One” Deirdre Barlow style for the Toji Morita owned sire of Harbinger Deirdre in the Coral-Eclipse 2020 today. Back in 1998, one viewer sent in £5,000 to what she believed was a genuine campaign to free the ‘Coronation Street’ character Deirdre Rachid after she was wrongly jailed for mortgage and credit card fraud whilst her conman lover Jon Lindsay walked free.
