Horse Racing – Doyle has high hopes for Barney Roy

James Doyle is optimistic about Barney Roy's chances of winning the Coral-Eclipse on Saturday. The Richard Hannon-trained colt won the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot last month, his third victory in four career starts. Barney Roy has never been in a race that is longer than a mile before but Doyle is content that stamina won't be an issue. Barney Roy is 7/2 with bet365 to win the Coral Eclipse while Eminent is available at 7/2. "It's great news that Barney is going for the Eclipse and I'm looking forward to riding him over a trip he's given every indication he'll stay," Doyle said. "It looks quite a strong race, as it usually is, but he should have a good chance."
