Coronation Stakes Tips & Betting Predictions


French-trained thoroughbreds have a great record in the Coronation Stakes and Teppal could add her name to the list.

The grey filly is unbeaten after two starts, including a win in the French 1,000 Guineas and that form will go a long way in this race.

Bettors will need to take a risk with the 6.50 chance but she represents value and could upset the more-fancied chances in the 2018 Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Fellow grey filly Alpha Centauri is the 4/1 favourite after winning the Irish 1000 Guineas by 1.75 lengths. The dominant win was enough to see the filly backed into favouritism for the Coronation Stakes and rightfully so.

She defeated Happily, which is currently on the third line of betting and many bettors believe she will repeat the effort at Royal Ascot. Despite showing signs of waywardness in the win, Alpha Centauri straightened up to record a convincing victory at the highest level.

She finished second in the Group 3 Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot last season and she looks a good chance to better that position at Group 1 level this time around.

Best Bet: Teppal to win at 6.50
