Time Test Short Price With The Gurkha Out Of Eclipse


Time Test is now 7-4 favourite from 9-4 with William Hill after it was found that The Gurkha would be playing no part in the Eclipse.

The Gurkha had been 5-1 with Hills before his removal from the potential line-up.

“Time Test was already the one to beat, but The Gurkha was his nearest rival in the betting and the task now looks considerably easier,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
