Tips for Coral Eclipse day at Sandown as Emily Upjohn and Paddington prepare for Group 1 battle

The Coral-Eclipse is a great day of racing at Sandown Park Racecourse with the Group 1 showpiece, the Eclipse, taking center stage.

As part of the British Championships, only the best will take part and only six are currently in contention, but there are also a few other races that stand out on the day.

The Coral-Eclipse is contested over 1m2f for horses 3 years and older.

Emily Upjohn has a lot of ability and sets the standard with a rating of 120.

William Buick is already confirmed to ride the John & Thady Gosden filly while Frankie Dettori is sidelined with a ban from Royal Ascot.

Emily Upjohn is a deserved favorite having won the Coronation Cup this season in style, making it two consecutive Group 1 wins after winning the British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes at Ascot in October 2022.

She was notably second by a short header behind Tuesday in the Oaks last year when she was the highly anticipated favorite, but stumbled early losing precious lengths and yet came close to making the greatest of all comebacks. to win on the big stage.

But it’s going to be an incredible battle between her and Paddington, the Aidan O’Brien-trained colt who has gone on to win since losing on his debut, including the Irish 2,000 Guineas and St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot by a convincing 3¾ lengths.

Coral-Eclipse Day Tips and Odds

3.40: Silver Queen 5/2

Lightly raced Godolphin filly trained by Charlie Appleby and will be ridden by Buick in what could be a massive weekend for the jockey.

The most read horse races

Her and Appleby’s form have dipped of late, but that could come in handy in the run-in with Silver Lady’s price tag potentially helping with those who don’t back her in patronage.

And Taillis will certainly be the most popular bet. But Silver Lady is open to progress having already beaten Never Ending by a wide margin where this horse scored high, winning in its next race.

Spike then placed a very close third in the Oaks Farm Stables Fillies’ Stakes, behind Sounds Of Heaven, who placed third in the Coronation Stakes and second-placed Queen For You, who placed fifth in the same race.

Coppice, meanwhile, won the Sandringham, beating 28 rivals at Royal Ascot at 6/1, but could be caught by the underrated and unexposed Silver Lady.

3:40 p.m.: Paddington 13/8

Despite her form, Emily Upjohn could be up against Siyouni’s colt, who won her fifth consecutive race ahead of Chaldean.

His father never took anything over 1m but there is more stamina for those middle distance from his mother’s side.

And dam sire Montjeu was a force to be reckoned with at Group 1 level at around 1m2f and 1m4f.

This progression feels natural and you can’t ignore anything O’Brien is training right now, especially with top jockey Ryan Moore ready to roll.

And of course the owners had an incredible season with Auguste Rodin winning the Derby and securing the Irish Derby this weekend.
