The Coronation Stakes is a one-mile Group 1 race for 3-year-old fillies. In the last decade, John Gosden has the best record of the trainers that are represented today, winning it twice. Aidan O’Brien has also won it once in the last 10 years, whilst jockeys Ryan Moore and William Buick have both won it once in the last decade.
This year’s field is comprised of 9 runners – and here’s our analysis and tip.
Finished no better than 6th in two course starts as a 2-year-old, but impressed with an all the way win last time at Epsom. However, she was getting weight that day from fillies that wouldn’t be as good as the principals here, and she has to run off level weights.
Won the French Guineas from Irish Rookie. However, as Irish Rookie finished only 6th in the English Guineas, she would seem to have a bit to find on the form book. Would probably prefer softer ground, too.
Most of her form ties in closely with that of Lucida, but she was highly talked-up over the winter as an Oaks horse. However, such is the form of the O’Brien stable this week, she should be hard to beat.
Looks sure to win a big race this year, but her form puts her down the pecking order behind Found, Lucida and Ervedya.
Looked good in Dubai over the winter, however she was 20-lengths behind the winner in the 1,000 Guineas.
The disparity in priced between her and Found can bet attributed to the better form of the O’Brien stable this week. In the first two on all starts on good or firmer ground – and shouldn’t be far away. She was also always considered a miler whereas Found was thought to want further.

The American horse could be a potential fly in the ointment, and it will be interesting to see if there’s any money for her.
Trained by John Gosden, but her Listed win last time leaves her with quite a bit to find.
A second runner for the Gosden stable, but she was beaten by Sperry on her last run.
Racing Tips Of The Day
Found will probably be very hard to beat with O’Brien and Moore in great form this week, but the value has to be Lucida who possesses a serious finish over a mile and has been saved for this after the English 1,000 Guineas.
