A field of 10 of Europe’s best racehorses will assemble in Saturday’s Group 1 Eclipse Stakes (10f) at Sandown in the UK.
The race lost its major drawcard after trainer Aidan O’Brien withdrew last year’s winner So You Think (High Chaparral – Triassic, by Tights) from the event.
Godolphin has a trio of representatives engaged in the Eclipse Stakes, including the Dubai World Cup (2000m) winner Monterosso (Dubawi – Monterosso, by Barathea), who will have his first run since his triumph at Meydan in March.
The Eclipse Stakes will also herald the return to racing of the outstanding Group 1 winner Nathaniel (Galileo – Magnificent Style, by Silver Hawk).
