2024 Coronation Cup Betting Odds at Epsom Downs racecourse

Friday, 31 May 2024

The Dahlbury Coronation Cup is a Group 1 encounter that takes place over one mile and four furlongs, with Emily Upjohn getting a mares’ allowance which could stand her in good stead for this race. John & Thady Gosden saddle a runner who has strong claims based on previous showings, although Westover is another smart performer that could have the edge.

It's a star-studded line-up for this clash, with Hurricane Lane successful on his previous outing and Point Lonsdale has also scooped consecutive wins along the way. Adayar and Luxembourg can’t be ruled out at this stage and it will be interesting to see how the racing betting market shapes up ahead of the off.

2023 Coronation Cup Tips

Emily Upjohn is likely to be a warm order for the 2023 Coronation Cup, with the runner returning to the track and looking to pick up where she left off. That was in the Qipco British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes on British Champions Day, with the 3/1 favourite being ridden to victory by Frankie Dettori and it was a three length win on good to soft ground.

Westover has already had one outing this year and the Ralph Beckett-trained charge was second at Meydan last time out, with the horse finding favourite Equinox too strong on that occasion. However, it was still a strong showing in the Longines Dubai Sheema Classic on good ground over one mile and four furlongs, illustrating plenty of class on that occasion.

Previously to this, Westover was able to finish sixth in a typically red-hot renewal of the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe and that performance was delivered on very soft ground, while Hurricane Lane runs in the Godolphin colours and the five-year-old was successful in the recent Jockey Club Stakes at Newmarket when enjoying a six length win.

Point Lonsdale is another one for the shortlist and there have been back to back wins for the Aidan O’Brien-trained runner this season already. Sent off as the 6/4 favourite at the Curragh on 16 April, the horse was able to achieve an impressive performance over one mile and two furlongs. Then there was a Huxley Stakes win at Chester over one mile, two and a half furlongs.

2022 Coronation Cup Betting Tips

Pyledriver was the 2021 Coronation Cup winner and the horse is likely to be back twelve months later on Epsom Oaks day for another crack at this race over one mile and four furlongs. William Muir and Chris Grassick will have high hopes for a runner who could be even better as a five-year-old than a four-year-old.

Martin Dwyer is likely to be on board, with the horse having beaten Al Aasy by a neck in the Coronation Cup last season. However, there hasn’t been too much to be blown away by recently, with the runner sent off as joint-favourite in the Neom Turf Cup in South Korea before delivering an under par performance.

There was a more impressive showing in the Longines Dubai Sheema Classic, with Frankie Dettori steering the horse to fourth place on that occasion, although Adayar is a runner who has been installed as the bookmaker favourite and Godolphin could be mob-handed for the race.

Adayar was the 2021 winner of the Epsom Derby and he was a surprise winner at 16/1, with the horse then obliging in the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes on 24 July, with William Buick then steering the same runner to fourth place in the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. A midfield performance in the Champion Stakes still leaves a few question marks.

Manobo looks an interesting runner and the four-year-old has barely put a hoof wrong along the way, with the Charlie Appleby trained charge having claimed the spoils in the recent Nad Al Sheba over one mile and six furlongs although the horse was beaten at short odds in the Dubai Gold Cup.

Can Anyone Beat Al Aasy in the 2021 Coronation Cup?

William Haggas could have a gem of a four-year-old in the 2021 Coronation Cup, with Al Aasy expected to run a big race at Epsom in what is the Derby meeting, with this race part of the Epsom Oaks racecard and it will be interesting to see if the money comes for the race favourite.

Al Aasy is trading at around even money on the Coronation Cup race card, with the horse having already scored a Newbury double this season, with the horse winning the Dubai Duty Free Finest Surprise Stakes on 18 April before going on to claim a further victory in the Al Rayyan Stakes a few weeks later.

Japan Looking to Build on Chester Win

Aidan O’Brien is never too far away when there’s a Group One flat horse racing encounter to be won, with the Irish handler having won the Ormonde Stakes on 6 May 2021 and it marked a return to form after an underwhelming 2020 which saw the horse fail to win on any of his five outings.

During the 2019 campaign, there were three consecutive victories in high profile races, with a victory in the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot laying the foundations for a triumph in the Juddmonte Grand Prix de Paris at Longchamp before Ryan Moore rode the same horse to victory in the Juddmonte International Stakes at York.

Broome, Love and In Swoop the Other Betting Contenders

Broome is another Aidan O’Brien runner with strong credentials and he has enjoyed three straight wins already this season, meaning that many will regard the horse as a cracking each-way bet and he was most recently seen triumphing in a Group 2 encounter at The Curragh.

Meanwhile, Love comes into this race off the back of a hat-trick but hasn’t been seen during 2021, with the horse having caught the eye when winning the 2020 Epsom Oaks and it was the Darley Oaks at York Racecourse.

In Swoop is the other contender that merits serious respect and the French-trained horse has turned in some impressive performers at Longchamp Racecourse.
