Eclipse Stakes cracker at Sandown on Sunday

The Derby and the Oaks may be over but the weekend still has something special to offer. The Group 1 Eclipse Stakes at Sandown on Sunday looks a cracker. Enable has her first race since having an unprecedented third Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe snatched from her grasp by Waldgeist in the dying strides. That brought an end to her 12-race winning streak, which included last year’s Eclipse Stakes. Now she bids to become the first dual winner since Halling

Kameko bids to add Derby to Guineas triumph

It’s many years since the winners of both Guineas races were aimed at the Epsom Classics. But that’s what’s happening in this strangest of years.
