We'll have a clash between Masar, Roaring Lion & Saxon Warrior this weekend.
Confusion was in the air ahead of the ante-post Coral Eclipse betting before the runners were finally announced this morning: Would Saxon Warrior win? Or would he not?
Thankfully for racing fans, a high calibre encounter between Masar, Saxon Warrior and Roaring Lion will go ahead.
Twitter was buzzing following the declarations, encouraging thousands to pile on their bets. The overwhelming pick in the market following the announcement was Saxon Warrior; the three year-old has accounted for a massive 69% of bets.
Aidan O’Brien confirming Saxon Warrior will be going to Sandown has caused bookies to slash the odds from 14/1 (yesterday) to as short as 7/2 as of just now.
Taking the best price from Oddschecker, Saxon Warrior is currently third favourite in the market behind both Masar and Roaring Lion.
Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: “Many who backed Saxon Warrior for the Eclipse Antepost would have been thanking their lucky stars that Aidan O'Brien confirmed his entry this morning. The news slashed the three-year-olds price to 7/2 and puts him alongside Derby winner Masar and Roaring Lion in the running."
