2019 Coral Eclipse Free Tips and Trends

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 16 winners having already landed a Group One contest in their careers then it often attracts some of the best horses from around the world.
