Race Info and Free Bets For The Coral Eclipse 2015
By The UK Horse Racing Tipster
Tomorrow is the Coral Eclipse one of my favourite flat races of the year. It is a race which usually pits the best 3 year olds against some of the best older horses and whilst this year is a small field it is no different.
We have the 2015 Derby winner, the 3 year old Golden Horn, facing off against the 4 year old 2014 French Derby winner The Grey Gatsby.
Whilst the older horse hasn’t won this year so far he won the French Derby in 2014, The Prix Du Jockey Club, The QIPCO Irish Champion Stakes and The Betfred Dante Stakes as a 3 year old.
I have a good record in this race having won 3 out of the last 4 years with So You Think (2011), Nathaniel (2012) and Al Kazeem (2013). Mukhadram won last year in 2014 in what was quite a large pack for this race, 11 runners, and at a price of 14/1.
However this year we have only 5 runners which makes it the sort of tactical flat race I like and one that Golden Horn should win on form.
Although The Grey Gatsby had a good third year it’s form has since waned since, not winning a race but still coming 2nd twice this season. It seems to be the main threat to Golden Horn and I would be looking to see if any markets without the favourite had a good price for it as that could be a way to make some money.
Anyway here is my race card for tomorrow ordered by AutoBOT rankings. Remember these are predicted AutoBOT ratings using the runners LAST performance. Tomorrow when the BRAIN analyses the race they could change as the Course, Going, Jockey and Trainer performance will all be reconsidered.
However it is a good indication of rankings at the present time.
As you can see Golden Horn has 627 which is quite respectable considering Gleneagles has 1132 and most average horses are in the 100-200 range. Members can view all the latest top horses who have raced in the last 30 days here.
I think Golden Horn will win but there doesn’t seem much value in betting on it. Therefore I will be looking carefully at Without Favourite markets on Betfair, Paddy Power and other bookies to see if there is any value to be had there.
Coral – Betting Offer
Coral is doing a special new member offer of 5/1 for Golden Horn to win the race.
It really nags me that I have already joined and milked these bookies and I suggest taking them up on their offer if you are not on Coral yet as it’s the best price you will get. It sure is better than 4/11!
