Racing Tips Staff 3 Jul 2019

Created by Joe Coral in 1926, Coral has grown into a global conglomerate, with high-street shops in cities all over the world and their website a market leader in the online sportsbook business. Like every sportsbook, horse racing is integral for Coral and this weekend marks one of the biggest dates in the racing calendar for this popular bookmaker.

The Coral-Eclipse Stakes is a hugely prestigious contest, having first been staged at Sandown Park in 1886, it give this year's crop of three-year-olds a first crack at their older rivals at Group One level. Coral decided to sponsor this thrilling race for the first time in 1976 and their partnership with the Eclipse remains one of the longest-standing bookmaker sponsorships in the sport today.

Clearly, innovation and loyalty are two key aspects of Coral's business plan, making them one of the premier bookmakers in the business. Still not convinced to do you betting with Coral on Coral-Eclipse weekend? Here are five more reasons why you should open an account with Coral today!

2019 Coral Eclipse Tips

Three-year-olds may have come out on top in three of the past four editions of the Coral-Eclipse, but I'm finding it very difficult to weight up Circus Maximus and I wouldn't want to back him at such a short price. Enable will likely be pushed into an odds-on price when Frankie Dettori is declared in the saddle. There was, however, only three-quarters of a length between her and MAGICAL at the Breeders' Cup and, with race-fitness and ground in her corner, I fancy Aidan O'Brien's filly could turn the tables on Enable at the weekend.

Magical may have come up just short in her bid to win the Prince Of Wales's at Royal Ascot, but the rain-sodden ground put the ball firmly in Crystal Ocean's court that day and Ryan Moore's mount ran a very respectable race to beat Waldgeist into second. This looks to be her optimum trip, fast ground won't be a bother and the turning, right-handed track here at Sandown could also suit this hardy filly. At her current odds, Magical is the best bet in this year's Coral-Eclipse.
