Twice Over gave Henry Cecil his fourth Coral-Eclipse Stakes with an all-the-way success in the prestigious Group One contest at Sandown.
Cecil had been without a win in the 10-furlong event since Gunner B scored in 1978, and jockey Tom Queally was keen to make sure there was not a repeat of his unlucky run at Royal Ascot by bouncing out of the stalls and making it a test.
The mare Dar Re Mi was shadowing him until three furlongs out when Twice Over accelerated clear and the rest were soon in trouble.
Zacinto never looked like getting involved and it was 33-1 outsider Sri Putra who stayed on strongest of all to chase the 13-8 winner home, eventually going down by half a length, with Viscount Nelson third.
Marcus Tregoning’s Mawatheeq refused to enter the stalls before the race and had to be withdrawn.
