Day 2 – Wednesday 11th March 2020 – 2.50pm – Coral Cup Handicap Hurdle – Grade 3 – 2m5f
The Coral Cup Handicap Hurdle is a grade 3 handicap hurdle in which favourites do not have a positive record. In fact, only one favourite has won in the last 17 years, and this makes it very difficult to predict. Lots of horses are coming to this race well handicapped, and lots have a chance of winning in what is usually a very open renewal. We have looked at the different options and come up with our preference for this year’s Coral Cup.
Our bet: STRATUM
Stratum has already won a big handicap race even if that was on the flat for his connections. He has won two of his nine starts over hurdles, with the most prestigious being the Cesarewitch at Newmarket back in October. Surely representing Willie Mullins’ he has to be taken seriously off a handicap mark of 145. There are many dangers in the field with the main threats that are McManus-owned pair, Birchdale and Dame de Compagnie.
Our Verdict: Stratum
A £20 Bet On The Selection Above Returns (Recommended Bookie – Best Price):
