Coronation Stakes History
The Coronation Stakes, which was first run in 1840, became a Group 1 in 1988.
Magic of Life for trainer Jeremy Tree was the first runner to win at the top grade and there have been many champion winners since.
It usually features fillies that have competed in feature Group 1 races earlier in the season. Fillies typically compete in the 1000 Guineas, Irish Guineas or the d'Essai des Pouliches in France prior to running in the Coronation Stakes.
Winter scored a win in the 1000 Guineas before winning at Royal Ascot in 2017.
A race associated with globetrotting fillies, Banks Bill added to the list of champion international runners. The French filly had run second in the French Guineas and would later win at the Breeders' Cup meeting.
English and Irish Guineas winner Attraction was a popular winner in 2004. The Mark Johnston-trained runner was almost put down as a juvenile, but she continued her unbeaten run in the Coronation Stakes.
The Coronation Stakes is a good race for each way bettors. Recent Royal Ascot winners have paid good odds with online bookmakers, including 2016 winner Qemah and 2015 winner Ervedya, which was one of the highest-rated fillies in the field.
The French runner paid 3/1 with bookmakers, which was a value price because the Aidan O'Brien Found (13/8) took most of the action.
Punters also got value odds with classy filly Rizeena. The Irish filly paid 11/2 when scoring by just under a length for jockey Ryan Moore and trainer Clive Brittain. Race favourite Lightning Thunder finished well down the track.
Fallen For You paid 12/1 when winning in 2012 for John Gosden. Homecoming Queen was the raging-hot favourite with punters, but it was another disappointing result for the punters' elect.
Lillie Langtry was a well-backed winner in 2010 for Aidan O'Brien. Paying 7/2 with bookmakers, the filly scored comfortably over longshot Gile Na Greine.
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 for Aidan O'Brien.
Minding was the shortest favourite to win the Coronation Stakes since Attraction won as the 6/4 favourite in 2004.
Fresh off her superb victory in the Irish 1000 Guineas, Alpha Centauri handed trainer Jessica Harrington her first Royal Ascot winner in the Coronation Stakes.
In 2019, dual-Guineas winner, Hermosa was pipped to the post by French raider Watch Me, ridden by Pierre Charles-Boudout.
