Coronation Stakes betting selections & tips

We will have expert tips for the Coronation Stakes available when the final-field markets are released by bookmakers.

Coronation Stakes history

The Coronation Stakes was first run in 1840 and it was given Group 1 status in 1988.

Magic of Life was the first runner to win at Group 1 level for Jeremy Tree and that kick-starter a trend of high-quality winners.

The Coronation Stakes features fillies that have competed in feature Group 1 races earlier in the season. Lead-up races typically include the 1000 Guineas, Irish Guineas and the d'Essai des Pouliches in France for the international contingent.

Winter was an example of a filly which scored a win in the 1000 Guineas before winning at Royal Ascot.

Banks Bill added to the list of champion international runners. The French filly had run second in the French Guineas before winning the Coronation Stakes and the champion filly would later win at the Breeders' Cup meeting in the US.

Attraction was a popular winner in 2004. The Mark Johnston-trained runner was almost put down as a younger horse and she proved too strong once again by taking out the Coronation Stakes.

Coronation Stakes betting guide

Recent winners have paid good odds with bookmakers, including 2015 winner Ervedya and 2016 winner Qemah.

Ervedya paid 3/1 with bookmakers, which was considered good value because Found had taken most of the action with bookmakers. Found would later upset Golden Horn at the Breeders' Cup.

Bettors got value odds with Irish filly Rizeena, which paid 11/2 when scoring by just under a length for jockey Ryan Moore.

Fallen For You paid 12/1 when winning in 2012 for John Gosden. Homecoming Queen was the warm favourite with punters but it wasn't able to make any ground on Fallen For You.

Lillie Langtry was a heavily-supported winner in 2010, paying 7/2 with bookmakers.

There have been some short-priced favourites in recently, including 2009 winner Ghanaati (2/1) and 2017 winner Minding, which scored at skinny odds of 4/9 to give Aidan O'Brien another win in the Coronation Stakes.

Minding scored at the shortest odds since Attraction won as the 6/4 favourite in 2004.
