Treve & Cirrus Head Eclipse Entries
French stars Treve and Cirrus Des Aigles feature among the 52 entries for the Gr1 Coral-Eclipse Stakes (10 furlongs) at Sandown on 5 July, reports 1.skysports.com. Criquette Head-Maarek's brilliant Arc heroine Treve surrendered her unbeaten record last weekend when going down in a thrilling finish to Cirrus Des Aigles in the Gr1 Prix Ganay at Longchamp. The two highest-rated horses in Europe look set to do battle again in the Gr1 Prince of Wales's Stakes (10 furlongs) at Royal Ascot on 18 June and a potential third clash could be on the cards at Sandown. Among the other notable nominees is Andre Fabre's Ocovango, who was fifth in last year's Investec Derby at Epsom, Irish Derby winner Trading Leather and John Gosden's exciting unbeaten colt Western Hymn. Aidan O'Brien is responsible for 15 of the 18 Irish representatives, with the likes of Australia, Magician and Ruler Of The World all in contention.
