Coral-Eclipse 2022: All you need to know

Where and when is the Coral-Eclipse?

The race takes place every year in early July at Sandown Park. The Coral-Eclipse 2022 is on Saturday July 2 at 3.35pm.

What is the Coral-Eclipse?

The Group 1 flat race is open to horses aged three years and above. It is run over one mile, one furlong and 209 yards. Named after a legendary 18th-century racehorse called Eclipse, it has been run since 1886 and sponsored by Coral since 1976.

Coral-Eclipse news and features

Mishriff on course for Coral-Eclipse

David Egan put Mishriff through his paces on the Newmarket gallops on Wednesday morning as the Coral-Eclipse approaches. The John and Thady Gosden-trained five-year-old has not been seen since disappointing in defence of his Saudi Cup title on dirt.

Real World still in the mix, Vadeni set to be supplemented

Real World is still in the mix for the Coral-Eclipse Stakes at Sandown, having chased home Baaeed on his last two outings. Saeed bin Suroor’s five-year-old got closer to William Haggas’ unbeaten star at Royal Ascot than he did in the Lockinge, although he was still beaten by a length and three-quarters.

Adayar ruled out after fitness setback

Last season’s Derby and King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes hero Adayar will miss the Coral-Eclipse and instead head straight to Ascot to defend his all-aged middle-distance crown.

Relive the 2021 race

St Mark’s Basilica put up a hugely impressive display to beat top-class older horses Addeybb and Mishriff.

Coral-Eclipse records

Five horses have won the race on more than one occasion; Orme, Buchan, Polyphontes, Mtoto and Halling.

Three trainers have enjoyed six wins in the race, with Aidan O’Brien reaching that mark in 2021 to join Alex Taylor Jnr and Sir Michael Stoute.

Lester Piggott is the top jockey in the race with seven wins, the last of which was on Artaius in 1977.
