The Coral Cup is a handicap and there is always a very large field that go to post. The Coral Cup results highlight how difficult a race this for favourites with only one favourite coming home in front in the last 16 years. The Coral Cup is run over 2 miles 5 furlongs the same distance as the Neptune Investment Hurdle earlier in the afternoon.
A reason why this is such a difficult race to win is that there are very few trends that really shout out and that is why reading the Coral Cup Form is tough for the horse racing anoraks as horses of all ages win.
There is no one trainer that has a great record in the race and the only thing that we see looking back at past winner is that horses with a low handicap mark seem to perform well.
Coral Cup Handicap Hurdle Odds
The Coral Cup odds will be available when the online bookmakers put up their odds as with this race the declared runners are only finalised very near race day.
The Coral Cup form can be tough to work out as many of the trainers will want to get into the race with as low a weight as possible and therefore they may be shielding their horses from the handicappers gaze in the months prior to the race. We will attempt to look through all the relevant form guides in the run up to the race in March.
