PAT Smullen could come in for the ride on leading Coral-Eclipse contender Time Test at Sandown next Saturday should his regular partner Ryan Moore be required by Aidan O’Brien.

In the likely event of Moore teaming up with the Ballydoyle maestro, who is responsible for 13 of the 39 entries left in the Group 1 contest, connections will turn to the eight-times champion Irish jockey to partner the Roger Charlton-trained four-year-old.
