Coral Cup Hurdle Betting Tips & Odds 2018

14.50 The Coral Cup Hurdle (A Handicap Hurdle Race)

The Coral Cup is a cavalry charge over two miles and five furlongs (and a few yards) and attracts some of the finest middle distance horses around.

Last year, the ever-popular Irish trained Jessica Harrington struck with Supasundae under Robbie Power, producing a classy display to power clear of Taquin Du Seuil and Who Dares Wins.

The 2017 Coral Cup winner is now high in the Cheltenham betting for the 2018 Stayers’ Hurdle and has progressed very well from the Coral Cup to push for Grade 1 honours a year on.

Coral Cup Feature Betting Tip

Ante-post favourite William Henry looks like a Graded performer that is playing silly beggars in a handicap and trainer Nicky Henderson has certainly plotted this route with the utmost of skill.

Currently trading at 10/1 William Henry may well go off a much shorter price come the off.

Paul Nicholls’ Topofthegame is an interesting type in this race and his Sandown Park victory last time was most impressive. The six-year-old is likely to be arriving on the premises late.

Malton trainer John Quinn quite often pops up at The Festival with a winner that most people have overlooked in the betting odds.

One such candidate this year is the JP McManus owned PROJECT BLUEBOOK. He is entered in this, the Martin Pipe and the County Hurdle. A winner of a Grade Two hurdle at Fairyhouse’s Irish Grand National meeting last April, it could prove profitable to give him a second look.

Main Players

After winning the Lanzarote Hurdle at Kempton Park in January under the brilliant James Bowen, William Henry has the profile of a horse likely to go off favourite or near favourite for the Coral Cup. He had a bit of a fright over fences, but a return to hurdles has seen his fortunes turn around and he could still have more to offer. The handicapper has put him up 5lb for that win, which is fair.

Other names to note include the returning Barters Hill, The Storyteller and Ben Pauling’s Kildisart, a progressive novice who stays well and could take his chance.

At bigger prices Bapaume would be interesting if running in this instead of a Graded race, while Westend Story and Charming Zen are also notable names in a huge market of entries.
