William Haggas sends one runner to the Group One Coral Eclipse at Sandown on Saturday in the form of Dubai Honour. The five-year-old enters this contest on the back of finishing third in a group one contest at Sha Tin back in April. That was the gelding's first run of the new season, having run a couple of competitive races in 2022 at Kempton (second in G3 September Stakes) and York (second in G2 York Stakes). The five-year-old hasn't tasted success since winning three successive races back in 2021 at Newmarket, Deauville and ParisLongchamp (two G2's).
He has a good run in him and is certainly not dismissed, but the top two in the market look strong and tough to beat. Tom Marquand is booked to ride.
