Coral Eclipse Stakes 2011 at Sandown - So You Think favourite over Workforce
The mega clash between Derby and Arc winner, Workforce, and, Aidan O’Brien trained champion colt, So You Think, at Sandown in the Coral Eclipse Stakes heats up by the minute.
The gambling battle for the two favourites is drifting in and out. Workforce continued to sway in the markets as he is pushed out to 2-to-1. So You Think is odds-on favourite to win the race.
The obvious support for So You Think by the bookmakers keeps the Wales’s Stakes runner-up as hot favourite to win the Coral Eclipse Stakes.
The former Australian, So You Think, who will be trying to atone for an Ascot defeat, has taken eighty percent of the bets. It shows that the punters have shown a lot of confidence in Aidan O’Brien’s colt, despite her Ascot defeat.
Workforce has been cut down from 7-to-4 to 2-to-1, and, So You Think, has been cut down from 10-to-11, to, 5-to-6, which clearly shows the five year old bay colt, So You Think, is favoured over the Arc and Derby winner, Workforce.
The general public poll does not favour the punters choice for the Coral Eclipse Stakes favourite. In each poll, Workforce is favoured more over So You Think and it is not as one sided as betting firms have made it.
Both are neck-to-neck in terms of winning the race. Shedding light on the two most illustrious horses to run the European circuit, it is not hard to see that there is very little to differentiate the two.
From August 2010 to October 2010, So You Think aced all races. He participated in six races during that period and won all six. He had a third finish on the card in the Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup where he finished 2 ½ lengths behind the winner Americain
on 2 November 2010.
After that defeat So You Think won the next two races at the Curragh. First, the Group 3 High Chaparral European Breeders Fund Mooresbridge Stakes, on 2 May, 2011, after that the prestigious Group 1 Tattersalls Gold Cup. Then came the Ascot disappointment
on 15 June 2011.
On the other hand, Workforce has had 4 wins from his 6 starts with a single runners-up finish. He started his 2-year old career brightly with a win in the Electrolux Professional EBF Maiden Stakes. The Sir Michael Stoute trained bay colt had an up and down
three-year old career with two wins and a single runner-up finish.
Workforce grabbed an average fifth position in his first Royal Ascot meeting in 2010 but won the Group 3 Piper Heidsieck Champagne Brigadier Gerard Stakes on 26 May at the Sandown.
Hope the race is not as one sided as the gambling war over the two colts.
