Following the action of the 2010 Sandown Classic, the next race on the card at the Betfair Park Sandown Hillside meeting today is Race 8 – the $125,000 Group 3 Eclipse Stakes (1800m) set to jump at 4:50pm (AEDST).
The 2010 Betfair Eclipse Stakes final field features a field of 14 top runners following the scratching of #6 Eraset.
Clear favourite to win the Eclipse Stakes is the Lloyd Williams-owned Niblick who has been well backed into $2.80 at Luxbet.
