2022 Coral Cup Tips

William Henry, Dame De Compagnie and Heaven Help Us are among the recent winners of the Coral Cup, with lots of big priced winners meaning that punters should often look beyond the short priced horses when selecting the runners that might win this Cheltenham handicap race.

Good Time Jonny is a horse that demands respect and the seven-year-old has recently recorded a double at Leopardstown Racecourse, with the horse winning the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Novice Handicap Hurdle at the end of December before kicking on to the Paddy Power "I'd Love A Can But Pints Are Cheaper" Handicap Hurdle and claiming another victory here.

The horse has been less convincing when it comes to Cheltenham Racecourse, with the horse finishing midfield in the 2020 Champion Bumper and he recently returned to Prestbury Park and finished sixth in an Intermediate Handicap Hurdle when being sent off at betting odds of 100/30.

Unexpected Party Could Provide Cause for Celebration in Coral Cup

Dan Skelton is often the master of Cheltenham handicap betting races and perhaps he could land a winner in the form of Unexpected Party. The seven-year-old was sent off as the 3/1 favourite in the SBK Holloway's Handicap Hurdle on 22 January 2022, with the horse travelling really well over two miles and three furlongs.

The horse also ran in the same race at Cheltenham as Good Time Jonny and finished second behind Gowel Road, although the horse has been in the frame over the past four renewals and perhaps represents a great Cheltenham each-way betting tip.

Winter Fog is trading as the Cheltenham Festival betting favourite with some Cheltenham betting sites and this is an interesting runner who is trained by Emmet Mullins. This could feature when it comes to many Cheltenham tips, with the eight-year-old finishing second in a Christmas race at Punchestown and that was in a big field.

It was a strong run over three miles on soft ground and the horse’s performance in the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle might yet see the horse swerve this race, although Gowel Road is probably the best Cheltenham Festival betting tip of them all.

We are surprised that the horse is trading at big odds even if the horse flopped at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival, with the runner making no impact at the McCoy Contractors County Handicap Hurdle. The more recent win at Cheltenham means we should look at an each-way bet on this runner.


Many bookmakers will offer extra places for a horse race like the Coral Cup Handicap Hurdle considering that it’s an open encounter that takes place over two miles and five furlongs.

It’s a stern test of stamina for horses from four years old and upwards, with Olympian running the first ever Coral Cup in 1993 and William Henry was the latest to claim the spoils in 2019.

The nine-year-old won for trainer Nicky Henderson a year after Bleu Berry and it’s not uncommon for a horse to win at big odds in this race, while you always get runners at a big price that finish in the frame.

Stratum is a horse that can potentially run well in the Coral Cup and trainer Willie Mullins has become synonymous with the Cheltenham Festival, with the charge having recently finished fourth in a race at Punchestown on New Year’s Eve.

Whiskey Sour could also be entered in the race, with this being another Willie Mullins-trained charge with the horse finishing fourth at last year’s Cheltenham Festival and he was impressive in the Randox Health County Handicap Hurdle.

Having been sent off as the 5/1 joint-favourite, the horse performed well and connections will feel confident that the runner can go well this time around.

The Cashel Man is a more experienced runner, with the eight-year-old having run for over several seasons and there was plenty to like about a second-placed finish behind Thyme Hill when being sent off at 5/2.

Previously to this, there was a victory at the end of November when being sent off at 9/1 and trainer Nicky Henderson probably has his best chance of victory with this horse.
