After a disappointing Dubai World Cup in March. Twice Over has bounced back with an excellent 2nd place run to France's Byword in the Prince of Wales Stakes at Ascot. Then today, he just overpowered the Coral-Eclipse Stakes field at Sandown. Twice Over forged to lead early. Sheema Classic winner Dar Re Mi went with him for much of the race. But she didn't travel nearly as smooth as she did in Dubai in this race. Whereas, Twice Over was under a hand ride the nearly the entire race. Thomas Quealy never touched Twice Over with the stick until well inside the final furlong. Then, Twice Over wasn't weakening. He was just out on the lead alone, and become complacent and began to idol a bit. Sri-Putra and Viscount Nelson came charging late to close some ground and pass Dar Re Mi to finish 2nd and 3rd in the race. But Twice Over had the win in hand easily. Dar Re Mi ran 4th in the race. Zacinto, who just ran 4th to Goldikova, Paco Boy, and Dreameater in the Queen Anne Stakes at Ascot never figured in the race and ran 5th. This was his first start beyond 8 furlongs. Another short priced race favorite, Mawatheeq, pulled a B.C. Classic Quality Road, and refused to load for the Coral-Eclipse. He was scratched from the race at the gate.
