The Coral Eclipse will be the highlight race of the weekend’s action as it comes from Sandown Park on Saturday afternoon and it is all set to be a thriller.
You only have to look at the field to see why this is such a prestigious event as it is full of quality. This race is run over one mile and two furlongs and features some of the best horses over that distance.
The one to watch, however, has to be Al Kazeem as the five-year-old comes here in scintillating form after three wins from as many races this year.
Roger Charlton’s charge was last seen putting in a stunning display at Royal Ascot as he won the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes, which is one of the biggest encounters of the week.
Al Kazeem managed to come out on top by a neck, so it was a tough race for the horse, but he showed just how much quality he has, even when the pressure is on.
Now, Charlton’s talented horse comes into the Coral Eclipse as the 6/4 favourite Betfred and if at his best, he should come out on top once more.
In some ways, it might even prove to be a tougher encounter than the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes as everyone expects Al Kazeem to deliver this weekend.
There could, however, be plenty of bets on the horse that was only second by a neck to Al Kazeem in that one – Mukhadram.
William Haggas’ colt is available at 6/1 to win here and that might just prove to be a decent bet.
This is going to be a cracking encounter.
