Enable to face up to 7 rivals in blockbuster Coral Eclipse

29 Jun 2020

A small but select field are entered for the Sandown Park Group 1 on Sunday

Star mare Enable is on course to defend her Coral-Eclipse crown, but it will be no easy task with an eye catching field unveiled at the entry stage today.

Hurworth Bloodstock Coronagtion Cup winner Ghaiyyath, who beat both 2019 Investec Derby winner Anthony Van Dyck and Stradivarius at Newmarket looks the principle challenger on paper.

However, the supporting cast is littered with talent, including Enable’s stablemate Lord North. John Gosden’s colt has risen through the handicap ranks all the way to winning the Group 1 Prince Of Wales’s Stakes a fortnight ago at Royal Ascot in impressive fashion.

Japan, who disappointed that day, but has a Juddmonte International win to his name, is also slated to take his chance. And the field is given an International flavour as Group 1-winning Japanese-superstar mare Deirdre in the line-up.

Magic Wand, Regal Reality and Bangkok make up the entry list.
