2024 Coral Challenge Betting Odds at Sandown Park racecourse

Saturday, 06 July 2024

There are lots of potential winners who can win the Coral Challenge, with Perotto having finished third on his seasonal debut this season. The six-year-old runs for Roger Varian, with the horse having run well at Royal Ascot although there are lots of other contenders in the mix. That includes Holloway Boy and Two Tempting.

The latter has been clocking up several victories, with Classic having finished runner-up on a previous performance. Dual Identity has also secured a victory this season, with Metal Merchant and Point Lynas having lively each-way chances. It will be interesting to see which horse comes out on top over one mile.

2024 Coral Challenge Tips

There’s a wide open field lining up for the Coral Challenge, with Perotto having finished third in his last race. The six-year-old was sent off at odds of 25/1 in the Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot before he provided a solid performance. Roger Varian will hope that his charge can build on that display and secure a victory.

Previously to this, there was a win at Ascot back in August, with Holloway Boy trading at similar odds and the four-year-old is the highest-rated runner in the field. Karl Burke will be confident that a strong performance can be achieved after a fifth-placed finish in the Royal Hunt Cup, so there could be more to come.

Two Tempting has been impressive this season and the five-year-old could offer more, with trainer Jonathan Portman having saddled his charge to consecutive wins. There was a win at Sandown in mid-June over one mile, with David Egan steering him to success. That came after a victory at Epsom where the horse was able to edge matters by a nose.

Classic was able to register second placed at Sandown Park when competing against fourteen other runners and it was only Two Tempting who beat him on that occasion. That came after a disappointing showing at the same course, with Dual Identity a six-year-old running for William Knight and he has won this season.

2023 Coral Challenge Tips

Awaal has run to a high level in recent weeks, with the four-year-old finishing third in the Royal Hunt Cup at the 2023 Royal Ascot meeting. Jimi Hendrix and Sonny Liston were the only horses in front of a runner who has been installed as favourite to claim the spoils and there were twenty-seven who finished behind this horse at the prestigious meeting.

However, perhaps punters will be looking beyond the market leader for a bigger price and there was a last place finish in the Prix Jacques Laffitte at Longchamp which means that there is a question mark over the horse, with Indemnify having run really well for Alice Haynes when lining up at Sandown Park.

Al Mubhir is not without a chance and the horse was recently sent off as the 13/8 favourite when finishing third in the Pertemps Network Spring Trophy Handicap. Over seven furlongs, the horse found two too good but there’s a decent chance of victory based on the even money win in the King Richard III Handicap at Leicester Racecourse.

Dutch Decoy will hope to shake off the runner-up tag received over the past two races when going up at Sandown in the Coral Challenge, with the horse recently finishing second at the same track in the Aspall Cyder 1728 Handicap, with this coming after a runner-up position at Epsom Racecourse and perhaps this means the horse is a good each-way shout.
