City Of Troy set to Tackle the Coral-Eclipse Stakes at Sandown

City Of Troy set to Tackle the Coral-Eclipse Stakes at Sandown

Epsom Derby winner City Of Troy will skip the Irish equivalent at The Curragh later this month in favour of a tilt at the Coral-Eclipse Stakes at Sandown on July 6. 
The top horse racing betting sites have installed O’Brien’s charge as the Evens favourite to win the Group 1 contest at the Surrey racecourse. 
The step back to ten furlongs should suit City of Troy well, and a victory at Sandown would open up a wealth of possibilities later in the season. 


  • City Of Troy swerves the Irish Derby.
  • Epsom Derby third heading for The Curragh.
  • O’Brien eyeing ambitious dirt campaign.

Los Angeles Will Bid for Redemption in Ireland

With City Of Troy heading to Sandown, Epsom Derby third Los Angeles will get the chance to win a Classic when he lines up in the Irish Derby. 
The horse was a gallant third at Epsom, but had no answer to City Of Troy as he forged clear of the pack in the final furlong. 
O’Brien believes the Irish Derby will suit Los Angeles and he will likely be a short price on betting apps to claim the prestigious prize. 

Dirt Campaign on the Cards for City Of Troy

O’Brien previously confirmed that City Of Troy will be aimed at big dirt races in North America and that plan remains intact after his Derby victory. 
The son of Justify looks destined to contest the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Del Mar in November – a race which O’Brien has never previously won. 
City Of Troy is a best priced 8/1 on UK betting sites to win the race, but those odds will disappear if he records an impressive victory at Sandown.
