Betting On The Eclipse Stakes

When it comes to betting on the Eclipse Stakes there is no better avenue than online bookies. The convenience which they offer punters cannot be beaten, as the process of placing a bet can be worked into your own schedule rather than your local TAB’s. You don’t have to worry about heading down to the local TAB before they close, or travelling around to find the best odds and markets which suit you. All you have to do is sign up to an online betting site such as Ladbrokes.com.au! It only takes a couple of minutes and is so easy to do, once you’ve signed up you are able to wager on any race to take place in Australia and around the world!

The Eclipse Stakes doesn’t tend to draw the big names in the same way as something like the Melbourne Cup field, but check out the field in the Group Three Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2500m) a couple of weeks before as some will be looking to work their way back down the distances. Another tip which can benefit punters is to check out previous winners of the races. So below we have listed recent horses which have saluted in the Eclipse Stakes , and the times the recorded. So familiarise yourself with them, that way you can see any similarities between previous winners and this year’s hopefuls! Then once you’ve picked your winner, head over to Ladbrokes.com.au to place your winning bet!
