Seamie Heffernan has this morning been handed the plum ride on red hot favourite So You Think in Saturday’s Coral Eclipse at Sandown Park where he will clash with last years Derby and Arc hero Workforce.
Confirming the news this morning via Twitter Ann Marie O’Brien posted “”So You Think will be declared this morning for the Eclipse on Saturday and Seamus Heffernan will be declared to ride him.”
Heffernan, who was in Group 1 winning action last Saturday when he rode Mist For Me at the Curragh, will take over from Ryan Moore who will now ride the 2-1 seond favourite Workforce for his boss Sir Micheal Stoute.
It will not be the first time that Heffernan will have partnered So You Think on the racecourse. Hoe rode the colt when he made his debut for Coolmore at the Curragh in April. While Moore has been on him the last two times, when he won the Tatterstalls Gold Cup at the Curragh and when he was beating a neck by Rewilding in the Prince Of Wales Stakes at Royal Ascot eariler this month.
Despite that defeat punters have piled into So You Think all week having been 5-4 when the market was opened up his is now 4-5 with Paddy Power and likely to shorten up futher closer to post time.
