Coronation Cup Preview & Odds

The excitement around this weekend’s racing is inevitably focused on The Oaks and Derby however in addition to the two Classics there is another Group 1 race that holds huge prestige in its own right.

Coronation Cup History & Overview

The Coronation Cup was established back in 1902 and is contested over 1m4f on the same day as the Betfred Oaks. Open to horses aged four years and above, over the same distance as both The Oaks and The Derby, the race is often contested by past winners of Epsom’s two Classics.

The Market Leader

Last year’s race winner, Emily Upjohn returns to Epsom bidding to become the first back-to-back winner of the Coronation Cup since St Nicholas Abbey won three in a row between 2011 and 2013. The five-year-old has failed to win any of her three races since winning this race last year but remains the one to beat.

Major Players

The biggest danger to race favourite, Emily Upjohn is likely to be Luxembourg for trainer, Aidan O’Brien. Luxembourg steps up to 1m4f for the first time following a couple of underwhelming runs in the Middle East earlier this year. He did however finish 19 lengths ahead of Emily Upjohn when fourth in last summer’s King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes and was far from disgraced when half a length down in second Irish Champion Stakes in September. Luxembourg is the only entry without a previous win at this distance but trainer, Aidan O’Brien has won the Coronation Stakes on a record eight previous occasions.

Feed The Flame races outside of France for the first time just a month on from going close in the Group 1 Prix Ganay at Longchamp whilst the most intriguing entry is Hamish for trainer, William Haggas. Hamish is eight years old now but has been in excellent form albeit in lesser races. Hamish heads to Epsom on the back of victory in the Group 3 Surprise Stakes last month. Hamish has won five Group 3 races in a row whilst his last Group 1 race produced a second place finish behind Kyprios in the Irish St Leger.
