Trainer Michael Stoute secured a sixth Coral-Eclipse triumph thanks to Ulysses (far side)

Sir Michael Stoute secured a sixth Coral_Eclipse Stakes triumph as 8-1 shot Ulysses edged Barney Roy in an epic finish at Sandown Park.

They crossed the line together, but the judge confirmed Ulysses, ridden by Jim Crowley, as the winner by a nose from the victor of the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Desert Encounter was third.

Favourite Cliffs Of Moher, runner-up in last month’s Epsom Derby, failed to recover after stumbling badly.

“I was just delighted to get back on this horse after finishing third aboard him at Royal Ascot,” said Crowley.

“We learnt a little about each other that day and this was a fantastic performance.”
